Daily Overview Showcases How Beautiful The World Can Be From Above

You've never seen the world like this before

Daily Overview is a rad Instagram account that showcased the combination of natural and man made structures, shot from the air, that make stunning pictures.

We live on a pretty amazing planet. If you look beyond the tiny details about humanity slowly destroying the Earth and accelerating the extinction of various flavours of animal seemingly as quickly as possible, then we’re doing a pretty amazing job.

Of course, it’s not news to most of you (assuming you don’t live in Wolverhampton) that nature furnishes our lives with beauty. But occasionally, a blend of nature and man made structures create beautiful, if slightly unbelievable pictures.

All of the shots on Daily overview are taken from above, giving us a unique aerial perspective on how what we build has an impact on the habitat and environment it sits in.

Port of Qinhuangdao, China

On Tuesday, new data from the Chinese government revealed that the country has been burning up to 17% more coal each year than previously disclosed. While president Xi Jinping recently promised to halt the growth of his country’s carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, the new figures mean that China has been burning an additional 600 million tons of coal each year. The sharp upward revision in official figures means that China has released much more carbon dioxide — almost a billion more tons a year — than previously estimated. This Overview shows the coal terminal at the Port of Qinhuangdao – the largest coal shipping facility in China. From here, approximately 210 million metric tons of coal are primarily transported to coal-burning power plants in the major cities in southern China each year.
