The Anthropocene

The Anthropocene: "What Is It?

New geological ages are characterized by changes in global environmental conditions and large scale shifts in types of species. Recently Earth has entered into a new geological age: The Anthropocene, from anthropo = man and cene = new [geological age]. Humans are now changing the world on a global scale and ushering in the new era in geologic time."
