Reading the National Geographic I was introduced to this word: Antropocene. It was actually coined by a Dutch guy, Paul Crutzen, to describe a new epoch. Pleistocene, Holocene, and now at the end of the Holocene we have gone into the time when it's not an ice age but rather a time period where a billion years later a geologist will have some explaining to do.. Humankind will have left an imprint, we came and we went without a single bent. I am an optimist by nature but a pessimist with regards to the world and as we know the world it will come to a screeching halt. I don't say that with a hope, no! It just happens to be that I see that the emperor wears no clothes. Here is Dubai: a few million living in the desert. No water, no food, just a bit of oil.
