Ahead of the United Nations Climate Conference, Reuters released “Earthprints,” a series illustrating the human impact on the landscape. From sprawling urban growth to the construction of new islands, each site has profoundly changed in the last 30 years. Each featured location has accompanying NASA satellite images that show the scale of the change. The climate change summit (COP21) will be held in Paris from Nov. 30 - Dec. 11.
