Anthropocene | If we assume that humans, and by extension, human civilization is a product of nature, considering the way that appeared, as small growing changes in topography,   an external observer could describe it as an autoimmune disease attacking its own body. However, what it would considered as a disease  is our very existence and the cure, the  ecological movement, does not aim at the «salvation of the planet» but at the salvation of human existence on the planet. Humanity’s impact  on Earth’s geology is so crucial that the 11650 years old Holocene, the current Geological epoch, is proposed to replaced by a new one called Anthropocene,  from the Greek word «anthropos» for human. www.georgemarazakis.com
