In Generation Anthropocene’s 50th podcast, Jan Zalasiewicz, Davor Vidas, Mike Ellis, and Mark Williams discuss with interviewer Miles Traer, what makes the Anthropocene boundary different from all of the other boundaries in geologic history, how they deal with the increased public attention to this particular boundary, and some cultural ripple effects of the Anthropocene dealing with the Law of the Sea. The panel represent the Anthropocene Working Group – scientists and experts who are deciding whether or not we formally adopt the Anthropocene into the geologic time table.
