Summary
"Humanity's impact on the planet has been profound. From fire, intensive hunting, and agriculture, it has accelerated into rapid climate change, widespread pollution, and the mass extinction of species - changes that have left a mark in the geological record of the rocks. Yet, the proposal for a new unit of geological time - the Anthropocene Epoch - has raised debate far beyond geological circles. The Anthropocene has emerged as a powerful new narrative of the relationship between humans and nature."--Book flap
