Humans kick earth’s @ss, usher in new epoch

Posted in beware of (blank), dystopian futures by Jef on March 29, 2010

This is nothing to be proud of:

…scientists propose that, in just two centuries, humans have wrought such vast and unprecedented changes to our world that we actually might be ushering in a new geological time interval, and alter the planet for millions of years.

Apparently we are responsible for the sixth largest mass extinction in Earth’s history. Which means when apes or el chupacabras inherit the earth and study its history we’ll be looked at much like how we look at the asteroid that recently, definitely was said to have killed off all the dinosaurs: “Really? An asteroid?” will be replaced with “Really? Those guys?”
