State of the Planet

Posted is a very informative and interesting audio slide show highlighting some major changes occurring on our planet as a result of human activity. The slide show illustrates the affect humans have on the earth's biosphere and living organisms in a variety of ways; in fact, some scientists have even dubbed the present era the "Anthropocene", or the era of humanity.
Take a couple minutes out of your day and watch the slide show. All of the maps are from the Atlas of Global Conservation--also a very fun and informative resource.
