Adventures in the Anthropocene : A Journey to the Heart of the Planet we Made (Patterns of Life) Paperback / softback

Part of the Patterns of Life series

Paperback / softback


Explore the impact of humans on the planet in this beautiful new edition of Gaia Vincent's powerful work. In recent decades human beings have altered the planet beyond anything it has experienced in its 4.5 billion-year history.

We have become a force on a par with earth-shattering asteroids and planet-cloaking volcanoes.

As a result, our planet is said to be crossing a geological boundary - from the Holocene into the Anthropocene, or the Age of Man. Gaia Vince quit her job to travel the world and to explore what all these changes really mean to our daily lives.

She discovers the shocking ways in which we have reshaped our living planet and reveals the ingenious solutions we've evolved to engineer Earth for the future. PATTERNS OF LIFE: SPECIAL EDITIONS OF GROUNDBREAKING SCIENCE BOOKS
