supplementing the Holocene — the warm period of the past 10–12 millennia. The Anthropocene
could be said to have started in the latter part of the eighteenth century, when analyses of air
trapped in polar ice showed the beginning of growing global concentrations of carbon dioxide
and methane. This date also happens to coincide with James Watt’s design of the steam engine
