With global warming, the climate of our world is changing day by day. And who did this, and why?
“Anthroposin”, which is the subject of different articles, debates, and conferences every day, was first proposed by atmospheric scientists and later by geologists. According to studies, humanity is on the verge of a period called this concept.
So what exactly does this Anthroposin mean?
The age we continue to live in is divided into many parts. Antroposin, which is used to indicate a specific part of this, covers the period when a race is directed to the future of our Earth for the first time. As you can see, the living race is human.
Antroposin, based on the idea of changing the world’s geological order by humanity; Anthropos (Greek: human) and -cene (which we are, Cenozoic Age, the shortening of the period) is composed of the words.
If we rate the 4.54 billion years of the life of our planet to 24 hours, we can only say 19 seconds for people on earth. Although we have been on Earth for a very short time compared to billions of years, we were able to ruin our home in a short time.
Atomic bomb tests, nuclear power races, the use of non-renewable energy sources … are just some of the actions that human beings are putting on earth.
Mankind has ruled the Earth’s climate and realized it as a planet without realizing or noticing it with the technologies it produced. We have come to the brink of a new geological era in this period when the world is no longer self-governed and is captured by us.
Research shows that the years ahead will be harder than expected. The time to think of taking everyone’s head in their hands is already coming.
