Welcome to the Anthropocene: Global Environmental Sustainability in the New Epoch
October 6 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Celebrate World Space Week 2022: Space and Sustainability. Join us in our Community Room for a presentation by Stephen Lindberg, an adjunct instructor in the Natural Sciences Division at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.
What has been the impact of human presence on the Earth in the last 11,700 of the Holocene Epoch? Can we achieve a level of environmental sustainability on a global scale, or are we destined to deplete the Earth of it’s natural resources? Views from space demonstrate how human activity has altered the Earth and provide clues to what the future holds as we enter the new epoch: The Anthropocene.
