“In a defining act of our arrogance we have recently named a new geological epoch after ourselves: ‘The Anthropocene’ – the Age of Human. Sadly it’s justified because of our species’ terrifying impact on the world which will be indelible for hundreds of thousands of years. Whilst our structures, our machines, will rust and crumble our Plutonian footprint will only slowly fade and the strata of the Earth’s crust will be studded with plastic fossils that will forever tell a tale of toxicity.” Chris Packham
