The ’10 Year Challenge’ is a great way for people to look back on how they have changed in the past decade. However, some have found a different use for the trend. A few netizens are choosing to share the drastic changes that our planet has gone through since 2009 and the results are heartbreaking.
Several conservationists are posting images of Earth’s resources from 10 years ago and comparing it to their current state today. Organizations like Greenpeace highlighted how climate change has affected the Arctic Ice Sheet in the past 100 years.
The Greenpeace Instagram account also shared images of the Amazon rainforest, which has gone from lush and green to dead and barren. The caption also revealed who is responsible for such a drastic change.
“That which took nature hundreds of thousands of years to create, humans have destroyed in less than ten. This is the saddest #10YearChallenge you’ll see today.”

Non-government organizations and conservationists are not the only ones who want the world to fight climate change. Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio also spoke out about what people need to do to save the planet.
“What will the Arctic look like in 10 more years? #ClimateAction becomes more urgent every day. It is my hope that both we, as individuals, and the organizations that represent us treat climate change as the urgent threat that it is,” DiCaprio wrote.

Reports have revealed that 2018 was the hottest year on record as the oceans warmed up 40% more quickly than previously thought. This means that 2019 is the time when people should join together to combat climate change for our children’s future.
Conservationists are hoping that using the ’10 Year Challenge’ will reach more people and make them realize that the time for change is now.
