SSO 102.06 : Welcome to the Anthropocene

Spring 2018

F.M. Walter



The Anthropocene is that time during which humans have made a lasting impact on the Earth.
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.
In this seminar we shall examine the results of this on-going experiment, discuss consequences for the future of humanity, and consider possible solutions.
