More than a decade ago, Nobel Prize-winning atmospheric chemist Paul Crutzen first suggested that we were now living in the "Anthropocene," a new geological epoch in which human dominance of biological, chemical and geological processes on Earth was already an undeniable reality. Crutzen's ideas inspired Christian Schwagerl to do further documentation and to write this stimulating book. "...intellectually exciting book...shows us how we humans turn our relationship with Nature upside down." -- Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the UN Environment Program (UNEP) "Schwagerl may not be summoning the apocalypse so much as ringing in the Sunrise World as a Green Utopian." -- Jeanne Rubner, Suddeutsche Zeitung "...skillfully investigated, and an invitation to join a dawning Age of Humans, where our total responsibility is fundamental to life itself." -- Prof. Dr. Reinhold Leinfelder, Former CEO of Berlin's Museum of Natural History and advisor to the German government on global environmental change
