Event description
We may have entered a new period in geological history where humans dominate the Earth with uncertain consequences—the “Anthropocene.”

About this Event

How did we get to this point?  Are we failing our sister and brother species?  Where do we go from here? This will include an informal talk by Dr. Spence Stober of Alvernia University with time for questions and discussions afterward.
