HON 301: Welcome to the Anthropocene
Since the discovery of agriculture, we humans
have been running a largely uncontrolled experiment that involves the future
of humanity and perhaps the future inhabitability of Earth.
The Anthropocene is this time during which humans
have made a lasting impact on the Earth.
In this class we shall examine the results of this on-going experiment,
and discuss implications for the future of humanity.
