What is Anthropocene?

The Anthropocene is a name given to a new geological epoch. This means that humans are changing the entire global climate and its ecosystems.

The burning of fossil fuels, overuse, mass consumption and extinction of species have affected the Earth's balance and ability to regenerate. One could use many grave words to describe how a small percentage of the world´s richest population have exploited the world around them in the past hundred years: irresponsibility, arrogance, greed and egoism. The Anthropocene follows the Holocene, the

period in geological history that began 11,500 years ago. It was an epoch that led to the advance of agriculture, cities and larger societies. What the Anthropocene will entail remains an open question.
