This is a big week for viewing the effects of humanity on Earth from above -- in addition to a documentary film coming out this Friday, Wired has used NASA Earth Observatory images to created time-lapse videos of the Earth being de-Earthed.

You can see deforestation in the Amazon, draining of the Aral Sea, urbanization of Dubai and more over at Wired Science.
