Is the Holocene Epoch over? Are we now in the Anthropocene Epoch?
So the topic I chose to talk about as you may or not have remembered was about the Anthropocene debate, whether we are in it or not. The Environmentalists make a compelling argument that the Anthropocene is the epoch that is to proceed due to all the changes that humans have caused including mass extinction of certain animals and plants. So I guess the problem is really what we define as change and how we define when a new epoch is to be called upon.
