March Science Café

Postcards from the Anthropocene
Wednesday, March 21, 2018
5:30-7:30 PM
Off Campus Location
Human beings have changed Earth so extensively that geologists now propose renaming our current epoch as the Anthropocene—the era defined by people. Human influences are apparent in the shape of landscapes, the extent of biodiversity, ocean chemistry, and our climate. We will explore the history of human influence on Earth and the ideas driving the concept of the Age of Humans, taking time to discuss consequences and implications for our future world. Speakers will include Julia Cole and Naomi Levin of the U-M’s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current research topics with experts in an informal setting. Hors d’oeuvres at 5:30 p.m.; program 6:00-7:30 p.m. Seating is limited—come early.
