...last night i heard a documentary on the radio which interested me.

A new word i learned, Anthropocene, defining a geological change, where Human kind are a force that changes the geology of the world itself.

...very frightening stuff because there is no return, to survive we will have to continue changing it, there is no turning back by stopping what we do, anymore.

Two articles i found today of interest,

Some scientists even write: 'Welcome to the Anthropocene'. At first I thought they were being ironic, but now I see they are not. And that’s scary. The idea of the Anthropocene is not welcoming. It should frighten us. And scientists should present it as such.”

I have to agree with this statement! If you returned to earth in 1000 years time I doubt you will find a human race. We seem to be content to poison the Planet and kill off all life form as we know them. The only living thing left ............ will be cockroaches in a World that we will not recognise. :x :cry: :roll:
