Human geologists are increasingly convinced that radioisotopes from nuclear testing are the best chemical signature to define the Anthropocene as an epoch. What do worms think? What matters most from the perspective of mushrooms or slime molds or cyanobacteria or bristlecone pine trees?
At the first gathering of the radically inclusive Interspecies Union of Geological Sciences – an organization that every organism on the planet is invited to join – human and non-human volunteers will be tasked with amassing and organizing material evidence of the Anthropocene: markers of humankind that members consider significant from their personal, cultural, biological and/or ecological perspective.
