Quote:Anthropocene: Humanity has changed the Earth so much that it has entered a new epoch, scientists conclude

Human activities like exploding atomic bombs and burying plastics in the ground have fundamentally changes the planet’s geological make-up, a new paper warns

İmage

Humanity has altered the make-up of the Earth so much that it has entered a new epoch called the Anthropocene, according to scientists.

Humans are leaving new minerals, rocks and other materials in the Earth and altering how it is made, a new paper argues. That has happened at such a level that we should start thinking of ourselves as having entered the “Anthropocene”, according to its authors, and have moved out of the Holocene epoch.

Huge events such as the dropping of the first atomic bomb in 1945 hugely altered some areas of the Earth, according to the scientists. The huge effects of the testing and dropping of nuclear weaponsmight be humanity’s biggest impact on the Earth, the paper argues.

And slower processes such as burning fuels, the disposal of new materials and the building of roads have altered the geological construction of the planet.

We have burning fossil fuels and disseminating the results across the world, the paper notes. That has left black carbon and other materials across the Earth since 1950.

And there are new and rapidly evolving “technofossils” found across the planet. The creation of new and more widely-used materials like concrete and plastics have led to them being strewn across the world and they are unlikely to be turned back.

Climate change is also altering the temperature and glacial make-up of the world. The carbon dioxide and methane concentration has changed markedly, and could end up being a more extreme event than previous ice ages, the paper notes.

Humans have also had a permanent effect on the biological properties of the rest of the world. Fishing, farming and humanity moving into new parts of the Earth has “permanently reconfirgur[ed] Earth’s biological trajectory”, the paper notes.

Wildlife has been pushed into an increasingly small part of the Earth. Only 25 per cent of the planet is now considered wild, compared with 50 per cent three hundred years ago, and species are going extinct at a hugely increased rate.

The publication of the paper — ‘The Anthropocene is functionally and stratigraphically distinct from the Holocene’, in Science — does not officially mark a recognition that we have entered a new epoch. But the data presented in it marks one of the strongest cases yet that the changes humanity has brought are big and broad enough to constitute such a change.

The formal question of whether we have entered into an Anthropocene, and when it began, will be put to the official geological body later this year.

After the Pleistocene, we lived for the last 11,700 years in what was called the Holocene. That was defined by the warmer and wetter conditions that began after the last ice age, and during which humans have come to make big changes to the Earth

this entire anthropocene period thingy is a bunch of PC crap created to fit a predetermined outcome. It is the absolute reverse of what research should be. They create an imaginary problem and then they formulate the imaginary negative symptoms and then offer the solution. The solution is always more laws and more taxes. If you oppose the new laws then you aren't PC and you are demonized as a pariah. The best thing to do is bow down to the Anthropocenic Gods and give them all your money.

The Anthropocene theory basically says the evil Christian white men in America are destroying the Earth with industrialization. The theory states their Anthropocene era began when America began. Anthropocene is anti America. It is anti Christian. This should tell you who dreamed up this stupid theory.

I thought it was the newly-reintroduced term regarding the geologic epoch we're in regarding how us, as a species, have effected the planets ecosystems?

How did you get evil white Christians from that?

It's pretty factual that we're destroying our atmosphere, oceans and land with what we're putting in them - I believe it's our responsibility as the Stewards of Earth to look after it.

The theory states their Anthropocene era began when America began. America was created by the evil white Christians.  Where have you been? How have you missed all the anti Christian propaganda. The entire Hippie movement was an anti Christian movement. Look at the peace sign. It is an upside down broken cross. Duh-h-h!

America isn't the only country in the world and July 16, 1945 was when the first Atom bomb was tested - that's what the scientists mean.

I'd argue it began with the industrial revolution around 1760.

I'm sure some may argue it's before even then.

What famous Christian country began approximately 1760?  Anthropocene psuedoology is directly aimed at demonizing the white Christian nation of the United States and seeks to blame the  evil US for everything they feel like blaming on it. Anthropocene is subversive hate trying to hide its radical never ending hate for anything Christian by inventing a phony academic name for this obsessive compulsive left wing ideological Marxist crapology.
