A Force of Nature: Us

Simon Lewis

We live in epoch-making times. Imean this literally, rather than as a tool to dramatise the globaleconomic crisis or latest political scandal. An epoch describes ageological time period. The end of the last glaciation, some 11,000years ago, saw the transition from the cool Pleistocene to the warmerHolocene. This relatively stable epoch saw humans turn to agricultureand our population rise considerably.
