Glossary

The Anthropocene

The proposed name for the geological epoch in which we currently live, defined by atmospheric changes caused by human activity which significantly shape the rest of life on earth.

The division of earth’s history into geological epochs is somewhat arbitrary, but describes time periods where the fossil record shifts from many types of life to others; for instance, between single-celled organisms to more complicated beings.  These shifts are triggered by major climactic events (ice ages, warming).

The Anthropocene appears to be another such climactic event triggering what some called the Sixth Great Extinction, caused primarily by human changes to the environment (pollution, deforestation, slaughter).  The rate of species extinction is currently quite fast, and appears to be quickening.

Quote

“When we revolt it’s not for a particular culture. We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe.”

Frantz Fanon
