Will everything change in 2024 and we will enter a new era and scientists will be the ones who will decide the future?

As we approach the end of the year, we can say goodbye not only to 2023, but also to our current geological unit of time. In 2024, scientists will decide whether we have entered the Anthropocene, a new era of human impact on the planet.

In general, the meaning of the Anthropocene comes from the Greek words anthropo, meaning “man”, and syn, meaning “new”, and is a period of change on the planet, when human activities, such as burning fossil fuels, take over. The idea was first popularized in 2000 by meteorologist Paul Crutzen.

Currently, the scientific community is unsure whether the Anthropocene has officially begun, and whether it is different from the Holocene, which began about 11,700 years ago. The crucial question we need to address is whether human activity has changed the Earth system to the extent that it is reflected in the rock layers.

In July 2023, the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG), a group of scientists responsible for defining a possible new era, turned to Lake Crawford in Canada as a case study to help make that decision. They chose this site because plutonium isotopes from nuclear weapons tests have been found at the bottom of the lake, which they say dates the start of the Anthropocene to the early 1950s. However, there are scholars who believe that limiting the Anthropocene to this era underestimates the impact humans had on the planet before the mid-20th century. There is ample evidence that our species left its mark long before, for example, during the Industrial Revolution when carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere began to rise.
