I agree! We can't make a geologic judgement without a geologic record
and we haven't been around long enough with that significant an impact to
say that we are in a new era.>>
Aren't we in the Holocene by definition forever? In other words, the
Holocene started 10,000 years before this instant in time, and the Holocene -
Pleistocene boundry is forever moving forward in time at exactly 10,000 years
ago.... Or am I totally wrong?
