Translated from the French.
The Earth has entered a new epoch: the Anthropocene. What we are facing is not only an environmental crisis, but a geological revolution of human origin. In two centuries, our planet has tipped into a state unknown for millions of years. How did we get to this point? Refuting the convenient view of a 'human species' that upset the Earth system, unaware of what it was doing, this book proposes a critical history of the Anthropocene, shaking up many accepted ideas: about our supposedly recent 'environmental awareness', about previous challenges to industrialism, about the manufacture of ignorance and consumerism, about so-called energy transitions, as well as about the role of the military in environmental destruction.
