The Anthropocene

Globaïa 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.
