Humanity’s Epoch : ANTHROPOCENE

Two very nice videos. The first is from an upload to the melodysheep: Remixes for the Soul YouTube channel:

A look at Humanity’s geological epoch: the Anthropocene. In collaboration with Elementa: Embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene is a new scientific journal published on an open-access, public-good basis—available freely and immediately to the world.

The second video is from a link included under the first video:

Human Planet is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind’s incredible relationship with nature in the world today.

Uniquely in the animal kingdom, humans have managed to adapt and thrive in every environment on Earth. Each episode takes you to the extremes of our planet: the arctic, mountains, oceans, jungles, grasslands, deserts, rivers and even the urban jungle. Here you will meet people who survive by building complex, exciting and often mutually beneficial relationships with their animal neighbours and the hostile elements of the natural world.

Human Planet crews have filmed in around 80 locations, bringing you many stories that have never been told on television before. The team has trekked with HD cameras and state of the art gear to film from the air, from the ground and underwater. The result: a “cinematic experience” created by world-class natural history and documentary camera crews and programme makers.

For those interested, there are follow-up links for you to check out on the YouTube pages for each video.

I want ice water.

        • I couldn’t agree more PT. And speaking of “overcoming all sorts of obstacles and hardships to exist on this planet,” did you see the “NOVA | Earth From Space” thing last night? As much as I love the space program, I’ve never appreciated the role of satellites more! 😀
