Scientists talk about the Anthropocene, or The Age of Man: the new epoch is man’s imprint on the planet visible in radioactive material from atomic bomb tests, plastic pollution, increased carbon dioxide levels and human induced mass extinction.

“We broke it, we bought it, we own it and now we’ve got to take responsibility for it. ”  Geographer Erle Ellis, Professor at University of Maryland, USA

Lately, I have been in wonder at how three light bulbs were able to be washed up unbroken on the shore after a storm.
