  • Scale up -- the problem is loss of human individual agency What do we focus on?: trade, environment, population, technology, politics, culture?
  • Since Hans Rosling started us with population, let’s put it in a larger context
  • So, in all, we can see a significant global population boom that is generally constant and exponential during the anthropocene
  • We can see this same information to slightly different effect using a chart --you’ll notice the devastating effects on Africa of the slave trade and imperialism --you’ll also notice the devastation of the collapse of the Qing Empire, the civil wars that led up to it as well as the civil war and Sino-Japanese wars of the 1930s and 1940s
  • The early modern world was already a global world connected by --trade (silver flow from Americas to Europe to Asia) --migration (voluntary and forced) --ecological exchange (flora, fauna, microbiological)
  • Cold War and Humans’ Imprint on Geological Strata
  • Great Divergence --causes dispute (see H109 Lecture 5)
  • Great Acceleratin
  • Engineering Geology 1
  • Engineering Geology 2
