I was more impressed with what at first glance appeared to be a floating Orangutan. Then I thought it would in fact be better in the 2019 picture given all the trees that have been felled.

This concerns the Aral Lake in Uzebekstian and is not the result of Climate change but Stalin's disastrous ambitions.

This doesn't appear to be the same location. Look at the shape of the hills in the background of the top picture -- now compare that profile to the bottom picture. Different topography.
