Waste from the Technosphere
Dr. David Suzuki (http://www.davidsuzuki.org/) recently wrote:
'Scientists have dubbed these times the 'Anthropocene,' because humans are now the dominant factor influencing Earth's natural systems, from climate to the carbon and hydrologic cycles. Now they're labelling our accumulated goods and technologies -- including houses, factories, cars, roads, smartphones, computers and landfills -- the 'technosphere' because it's as large and significant as the biosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere. Researchers estimate it represents 50 kilograms for every square metre of Earth's surface and is 100,000 times greater than the human biomass it supports.
