Humans have lived in the geological era of the fourth Holocene of the new age for 10,000 years. However, some scientists have determined the human impact on Earth and stated that the era of the Holocene has ended and that the new era of Anthropocene has begun. This means that human activity is equal to asteroid impacts and tectonic movements. Paul Crutzen, Nobel Prize laureate, has used the term “Anthropocene” for the first time. His proposal has been accepted in geology and biology and there has been participation in discussion by experts in philosophy of science, humanities and social sciences which has been spreading widely around the world.
