Want to know when the Anthropocene started exactly? It will only cost an entirely revamped scientific effort in archaeology, ecology and paleontology, among other disciplines, at an unprecedented planetary scale, according to a new paper calling for such a scheme.

Dominated is something that humans started very recently, until about the industrial age the impact and the changes of humans on the planet were no bigger than the impact of other species who all, albeit in a small way, change the planet.

Yes, I am stuck with the word "dominated" as well. It is somewhat too strong word when it is humanity versus world. it is far too strong when somebody says it that way I instantly end up thinking humanity never dominated the world.

Just think, dinosaurs have been roaming across the planet far longer than humans have lived.

We've been here a very short time.

When the humans got plenty to go around is when they dominated, lol.
