Ellis flyer

The Anthropocene: A brave new world?

January 29th 2014 - 8:00pm

British geoscientist Michael A. Ellis will present a complimentary public lecture about the Anthropocene, the scientific proposal that the Earth has entered into a new geological epoch defined by the impacts of human activity on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus. In his talk, Ellis will explain the evidence that supports the proposal of the Anthropocene, and he will examine the mix of harmful and beneficial effects the Anthropocene might bring. He also will consider whether science can be used to help humanity influence the Anthropocene. Ellis is science director for climate and landscape change at the British Geological Survey, where he oversees the development of a broad range of research projects. He has published widely in scientific journals, and his article on the Anthropocene appeared in the inaugural issue of Earth’s Future, a new journal issued by the American Geophysical Union.
