The Anthropocene: it's not just killing humans anymore

Is it too late for Earth?

Should Liberals just say: "to Hell with biodiversity" and join the earth haters in a final orgy of death, consumption and/or prayer?

Coexist or kill them all and let Goddess sort 'em out?

Mary Hoff asks Johan Rockstrom in the Utne Reader: "What would it take? Why do we need to think about protecting Earth’s systems from catastrophic failure?"
The evidence shows that we may have entered a whole new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, where humans constitute the main geological force changing planet Earth. The planetary boundaries framework was developed to address this new reality. The second is the risk of nonlinear change, which comes out of resilience theory and from empirical evidence that particular ecosystems have multiple stable states. But there is a big “but”: And the big but is, have we already gone too far? And that we simply don’t know yet.
End red state collapse. Rewild the West.

I followed the link and saw the photo gallery. It's pretty scary stuff. Pretty serious stuff.

Thanks for the link.
