Geological time is defined by spikes of geological change. These markers, like the death of the dinosaurs, is just one example. Are humans influencing the development of our planets course. It’s a theory discussed on BBC Science pod and worth a listen.
Are we, as a species, with our innovations and economic revolutions, changing the course and redefining our planets systems? Or is this a natural evolution, where a dominant organism, within a finite system, will eventually exhaust and fail?
Have a listen to BBC’s SCIENCE IN ACTION pod cast. There is also a discussion about the evolution of the brain and crowd studies.
