Have we entered a new epoch?

Extract from ABC News
For most ordinary people, the ecological crisis can seem like something that takes place outside of our everyday lives.
Political leaders, intellectuals and commentators often break this issue down into bite sized components, without looking at the picture as a whole.
Professor of Public Ethics, Clive Hamilton argues that all the evidence points to the fact that humans have become so powerful that we have entered a new and dangerous geological epoch…one in which the human imprint has now become so large and active that it rivals the great forces of Nature in its impact on the Earth’s functioning.
