"Anthropocene Epoch"

Humanity’s impact on the Earth is now so profound that a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene – needs to be declared, according to an official expert group who presented the recommendation to the International Geological Congress in Cape Town on Monday.
About the best I can imagine for this field of study is that those studying it will be able (maybe) to say, "I told you so."


  1. Have already enrolled at Harvard doing remote learning hopefully without the Buddhism PHD postgraduate on campus, but if it's another big word such as 'Anthropocene', perhaps mother earth deserves an applause in having me awake at the same time as you despite being many hours apart. Goodnight from Singapore, perhaps.

  2. When we're gone and history lacks recording, i imagine the life left will just call it "now".
