Incredible new video commissioned and released by the Planet Under Pressure conference in late March to highlight the newest epoch brought about by us, the Anthropocene.
This video is beautiful and majestic in its depiction of how humanity has spread its influence across the entire globe, with animations overlaid on the Earth demonstrating road and rail networks, internet lines, shipping routes, flightpaths and so much more; it is literally a wonder to watch and behold the might of us humans.
It boggles my mind to think how we have spread so far, built in every continent and country and literally blanketed the planet in our technology, for better or for worse.
Everyone should watch this just to experience our power and understand our species just that little bit better. There’s even a non-narrated version if you just want to sit back and soak up the video in all its sheer wonder.
