Facing two hostile eras – the Anrthropocene and the Plutocene

Daily Mail 28th Sept 2017, On January 27, 2017, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the arms of its doomsday clock to 2.5 minutes to midnight – the closest it has been since 1953. Meanwhile, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels now hoverabove 400 parts per million.

Why are these two facts related? Because they illustrate the two factors that could transport us beyond the Anthropocene
– the geological epoch marked by humankind’s fingerprint on the planet
– and into yet another new, even more hostile era of our own making.
