The "Anthropocene"

In 2000, Nobel Laureate Paul Crutzen, IGBP Vice-chair at the time, and Eugene F. Stoermer proposed in IGBP’s Global Change newsletter 41 that humanity had driven the world into a new geological epoch, “the Anthropocene”. In 2002, a related article was published in the journal Nature. The concept has gained much attention within the scientific community and now more widely.
