Saving Planet, Saving Ourselves Part 3

Humanity is faced with its greatest challenges since it evolved on Earth 200,000 years ago.  Rapid climate change and the degradation and destruction of our environment. The Earth has entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene Age, and henceforth all atmospheric and geological changes in the near and long term future will have humanity's footprint on it. It is critical that people begin to understand what we are experiencing now with more frequent droughts, floods, wildfires and extreme weather conditions, and it what portends for the future.
