the anthropocene institutenurtures new technologies and cultural
institutions required for the long term viability of humanity.
People reshaped the Earth's surface, and continue to do so faster than geology's tools of erosion and volcanism. We changed the chemistry of every drop of the oceans, and the whole atmosphere. That changes earth's ecosystems including the part we depend on. The current geologic era is the Anthropocene-- the era of Human control over the environment. Human's do not control themselves very well as political forces are very unstable. Never the less the human economy and the natural biosystems are connected and interdependent.
