It can be argued that a formal Anthropocene Epoch would inherently downplay the scale and significance of preindustrial (early agricultural) modification of landscape (24, 29) and oversimplify the complex and historically protracted human effects on the natural environment. In response, one might say that existing formal boundaries within deep geological time do not typically have such a deleterious scientific effect; more typically the research carried out to establish them illuminates the complex course of palaeoenvironmental history. Regardless, the Anthropocene has taken root in the scientific community, and is now unlikely to decline through practical neglect by working scientists.

Well how cool is that, humanity is going to destroy itself by destroying the planet. Serves them right. I never cared much for humans anyhow. What an awful ugly evil destructive waring species they are. They deserve to go the way of the dinosaurs. Good riddance. Bye bye humans, bye bye ya bunch of flesh and bloody thirsty planet destroyers, I hopes yous all burn in hell for the damage humanity has brought to this planet!
