The Anthropocebo Effect

Humans are now described as a global geologic force. The Anthropocene, a period that begins concurrent with the industrial revolution, is characterized with steep line graphs of human population, water use, biodiversity loss, nitrogen run off, atmospheric carbon dioxide, etc.
