CARTA - Humans: The Planet-Altering Apes
This CARTA series explores how humans have been altering the planet since the beginning. Experts address specific examples of how humans have drastically impacted the planet, and potential approaches to mitigate our negative impact. We ask how a single species could have evolved the ability to so drastically alter the entire planet. We now feel the urgent moral and practical imperative to call attention to the long- and short-term impact of humans on the planet that we inhabit, and the consequences for the future of our species.
