Scientists have uncovered the earliest hints of human-caused changes in Earth’s geological processes, and they suggest that we’ve been impacting the planet’s climate and ecosystems for up to 11,500 years.

Based on core samples dug up from the Dead Sea, erosion rates in the area were completely incompatible with what was going on elsewhere during this time period, and suggests that human ingenuity made its mark far earlier than we thought.
