A Changed Climate: Learning to Live in Reality
We live in a new era of the planet’s history. Past epochs have come into being as a result of dramatic geological or meteorological events—meteor strikes, volcanic activity, and moving ice sheets have all tweaked Earth’s climate this way or that. But today—and perhaps for some time—we have been living in a new climatic epoch, and one in which humanity itself has been the driving force. Humanity’s own activities have made it akin to a geological force. Many are calling this new epoch the Anthropocene—the age of man. This term, and its varied implications, are working to widen the discussion of climate change. In this talk, an historian and archaeologist  shares some of the ways that the Anthropocene idea provides a valuable link between climate science and humanities scholarship and helps to chart a path for how we all must learn to live on a world with a permanently changed climate. 
This talk is brought to you in partnership with the West Central Florida Chapter of the American Meteorological Society
