    The age of men..

    It is now accepted that the world is in a new geological period - called - Anthropocene.
    This simply means the age of man's influence into the global ecosystems, biodiversity and climatic systems.
    Thus, how man's activities have altered such systems and posed threat to species, including human beings.

    It is an interesting agenda and debate for geologists and other earth frontiers.
