The Anthropocene



Globa├»a have produced an introduction to the Anthropocene with pretty pictures.


Actually I'm rather doubtful as to whether the Anthropocene will turn out to merit the status of a geological epoch. It may not last long enough and should therefore be regarded as an end Holocene boundary layer associated with a mass extinction event.


Trust a geologist to take the long view.
