Will Steffen – The Anthropocene

Executive Director of the Australian National University’s Climate Change Institute, Professor Will Steffen, takes us on a journey through the science measuring humanity’s effect on the planet. Using tangible, real measures, Will shows us the profound change in the planet since the Industrial Revolution and argues that now, more than at any other time, humanity is the single most influential factor in global changes; so much so that we should recognise that now is the age of mankind – The Anthropocene.

    CO2 was at 387 when this presentation was made about 4 years ago. Now I think it is just above 400 so it moved much more rapidly ~ 2X what he mentions here.
