Anthropocene follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group, who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. From concrete seawalls in China that now cover 60% of the mainland coast, to the biggest terrestrial machines ever built in Germany, to psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains,Anthropocene traverses the globe to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination.
