Living in the Anthropocene
Friday, October 12, 2018
We are living in an era in which humanity has become the dominant force on earth. Population has tripled in less than 70 years and our expanding presence and aspirations are profoundly changing the land, seas and atmosphere of our planet. What does that mean? Dennis Dimick, Paul Robbins, Erle Ellis and Lynn Keller explore the scale and implications of humanity’s impact on earth and its systems at this Wisconsin Science Festival minisymposium.
