''... in our frenzied attempt to keep nearly eight billion people fed, watered, clothed, sheltered, and distracted, we are fundamentally altering the geophysical composition of the planet at a pace previously caused only by cataclysmic events..."

"...like the massive asteroid that smashed into eastern Mexico, wiping out the dinosaurs, sixty-five million years ago.”
