When it comes to the International Commission on Stratigraphy deciding on formally adoption the Anthropocene epoch to the geological time scale I would most defiantly vote to accept the proposition of adding Anthropocene epoch to the geological calendar. I feel that it should begin as soon as soon as possible, the immediate action could help mankind see that we are the ones screwing up the world and climate and the world as a whole would be able to fix the problem that stated with us. “Unlimited ‘toilet-mother’, capable of absorbing our toxic products to infinity” (Malm, 2). The quote has evidence that ever since humans saw that their waste (Feces and Urine) would be absorbed by mother earth with no consequences, this is what human kind still sees today. Malm stated that humans after all of the time on this planet see that earth will absorb all waste but that is a completely wrong thought, the earth has increased temperatures and seen great amounts of extinction due to humans and their carelessness with waste.
Humans need a sense of belonging and fitting in some sort of way and we will go to any lengths to fit in and be appreciated by someone or some group. This sense of belonging stops us from finding out how to remediate climate change because it is not something thought of, or believed by the masses which turns off the rest of the people from learning or caring. The way Cathy Whitlock addressed solutions was by using examples that are close to their loved ones or their own well being which is enough to convince a person that something is bad. My idea is same as the Dr’s and that is to make it close to their hearts, making them care more about what is truly going on.
