According to Robert Roy Britt, managing editor of LiveScience.com, humans have now altered the earth so much that an new geologic Epoch has begun. Sound important? It is! Read about it here.
Say adios to the venerable old Halocene Epoch, which got underway after the last Ice Age and has been with us ever since. Now, according to Britt, we're hurtling head-on into the Anthropocene age. Britt's inspiration for his editorial came from this report by the Geologic Society of America (GSA), the originators of this transition recognition process, cited in Science Magazine. Do you think the main stream media is going to pursue this story? I doubt it. Livescience.com and Science Magazine links have been added to the Pop Impulse blogroll.
