Entering a new Epoch

Science | March 18, 2009

Looks like we might be entering a new geological epoch - Anthropocene. I think it's a somewhat valid call. Human kind are transforming the world in a massive number of ways. This will no doubt leave a massive mark on the history of the Earth. The classification is still under discussion and far from formalised. I can't help but wonder how long this epoch will last for. My guess is that Machinapocene is less than a century away. So let's make this one last as long as we can.
