The video is a journey through the last 250 years of our history and charts the growth of humanity into a global force on an equivalent scale to major geological processes. It was produced as part of the launch of the website with the same name, Welcome to the Anthropocene. The website is designed to improve our collective understanding of the Earth system and to inspire, educate and engage people about humanity's impact on Earth. Its unique combination of high-level scientific data and powerful imagery will help people visualize and better understand humanity's geographic imprint in recent time.
The video and its accompanying website is a collaborative project between researchers and communicators from some of the leading scientific research institutions on global sustainability:
