    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.

    Hiyo ni debate, kwani wengine wanasema kuanzia karne ya 18 (mwanzo wa mapinduzi ya viwanda), wengine miaka 8,000 iliyopita; na wengine miaka 13,000 hadi 14,000 {ingawa hawa wanakumbwa na criticisms sana, kwani, wanaulizwa, je, Holocene itafit miaka ipi?}
