20 Items That Incredibly Stood the Test of Time

Time consumes things. Use it or not, everything will fade away when exposed to the environment. Things constantly change, evolve, and it is a great nostalgic feeling to look back at them and notice that change. As they say, “Time and tide wait for no man,” and that’s completely true.

It is amazing to see how some things have stood the test of time, and the only way to notice it is when we compare the old and new side by side. Therefore, to portray exactly that, we have compiled a list of items that made it through time.

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
