Subject: Was the sky more blue in the 2000's?

Written By: John Titor on 11/09/17 at 11:54 am

Something I am noticing in pics from the 2000's is that the sky looks more saturated blue.

Am I only the only one who thinks this?

Think about that question for a second.

Haha I also think like this. This is why the early 2000s are considered so colorful.

I remember them as clear blue.

The sky seems more dull blue rather than vibrant blue, people on the Mandella effect reddit think so as well.

The sun also seems less yellow and more white now

No I haven't noticed this. The air is a lot cleaner around my parts than in the early 2000s after they shut all the coal plants down.

I have not noticed any difference. London, UK, had the Clean Air Act in 1956 to clear away the 'smog'. Most of the time in London there is cloud cover, so the blueness depends on where you are to view it.

I will bear this in mind when I view older photos.

Smog was a fact of life in Ontario in the 2000s. Thankfully, in 2007 we started phasing out coal (and the Great Recession decimating the large manufacturing base in the American Rust Belt), there hasn't been a smog advisory here since 2013, and most people can really tell :)

Growing up as a kid in the late 1990s/early 2000s, almost half the kids at my school had asthma (including my brother).  :-\\ Thankfully, it is less common nowadays.

Yes. I don't believe in a lot of conspiracy theories but the chemtrail one I kinda do believe. Or if not chemtrials then pollution in general. I specifically remember the sky being more blue and the sun being yellow (not white like it is today) when I was a kid in the early 2000s.

Yeah probably. I noticed a lot of old folks saying the same thing. The sun used to look like an incandescent light and now it looks sort of artificial like a fluorescent light because the sun is white now. It could be a mandella effect type thing too. I heard many say the sky was more blue as well. And that many clouds are shaped differently. It all depends on what you believe.

CO2 is a green house gas. If there is a lot of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it will get hot regardless of ice age.

...and

Global emissions of CO2 in 2017 are projected to rise for the first time in four years, dashing hopes that a peak might soon be reached. The main cause of the expected growth has been greater use of coal in China as its economy expanded. Researchers are uncertain if the rise in emissions is a one-off or the start of a new period of CO2 build-up. Scientists say that a global peak in CO2 before 2020 is needed to limit dangerous global warming this century.

Hate to say this guys but 10 years is a minimal amount of time for the effects of climate change to be noticed.

Désertification, drought and flooding in many parts of the world lead me to say, on average, yes.

But if you live in northern areas like Alaska, Canada, Greenland or Russia, the Arctic is also becoming more green. So the white/brown tundra has been replaced by green grass in the warmer months in a few places.

It could be, but I highly doubt it, to be honest. While it has been proven that greenhouse gases do effect the atmosphere, the affects of it wouldn't be noticeable at all in the span of just nine years. The sky wouldn't look noticeably different now to how it did back in 2008, when I took that photo.

Has anyone considered the idea that the changes in the appearance of the sky in photos could simply be due to the camera devices themselves? As technology advances, so does the quality of the photographs. You could take a photo of the sky right now with a polaroid camera, and it would look completely different to a photo of the sky taken on an SLR camera.


That's beautiful.


Thanks. :)

It gets less blue as time goes on due to pollution in the atmosphere. Many people remember the sky being more clear. Regulations don't help.
