(n) The proposed current geological epoch, in which humans are the primary cause of permanent planetary change.
We have reached an unprecedented moment in planetary history. Humans now arguably change the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined. Climate change, extinctions, invasive species, technofossils, anthroturbation, terraforming of land, and redirection of water are all part of the indelible human signature.

Avec elles, c’est la dévastation de la Terre par nos industries que ce dernier enregistre : une réalité de pétrole, de métal, de pelleteuses et d’épaves. L’anthropocène vu du ciel en somme. J’ai toujours été frappé par ce paradoxe :…Read More
