Our planet, the Earth is changing. This is nothing new. What is different today is the pace of change and the fact the majority of it is caused by a single species; Homo sapiens.
In the era of the Anthropocene, human-induced changes are altering the face
of planet and modifying the climate. The relative stability of the climate over the last
10,000 years (the Holocene), the period during which human civilizations flourished,
is coming to an end. To survive and continue to prosper Homo sapiens must find
ways to both mitigate the change that is to come, and adapt to that which is already
locked in and for which no mitigation is possible.
