An Open-Access Anthropocene Journal

By December 13, 2013

Follow me on:

The American Geophysical Union, whose Fall Meeting I'm attending all this week, is taking the Anthropocene concept seriously. Thursday David Grinspoon delivered the annual Sagan Lecture on the subject, under the title "Terra Sapiens," putting some more flesh on the ideas I described 10 years ago as climateering and planeteering.

Along those lines, the AGU has also released the first issue of a new, open-access journal called Earth's Future to assure the largest possible audience for serious science about geoengineering, climate science, and everything else that the world's people will have to learn about as we reach for the tiller of the world.
