The Guelph Institute for Environmental Research (GIER) is joined by environmental historian Dr. John McNeil (Georgetown University) along with with Department of History professor and GIER affiliate Dr. Stuart McCook, as they discuss Dr. McNeil’s work on the Anthropocene Working Group tasked with making the case for the Anthropocene as a new geologic epoch.

Join us to learn about the significance of this decision, the difficulties of determining a geologic marker to signal the shifting of epochs, and a fascinating overview of how humans have, in recent history, begun refashioning Earth’s biome.
