Anthropocene

Folder: 
A New View

.

Humans have been affecting the climate

for a million years. Purportedly, this means

I have ancestors that lived a million years

ago. We all do. It is a uniting factor. Same

source, wherever it began.

.

The epoch in geological history in which

humans roamed earth and affected

everything on earth, names us front

and center as players. Decendent intelligence

will discover our bones and carbon date

us and measure our intake and the causes

created by our output. That will sum up

civilization nicely.

.

It is kind of exciting to be one of earth's

epochs. I hope it lasts a long time into

the future, but any anthropologist

or climatologist will give me argument

against that dream, I'm sure..

A million years. That's a decent run at living, I think. :D slc
