The Cataclysm of Geo-Bio-Climate in Short-Lived Holocene and in Anthropoceneepochs: A Critical Review
Siba Prasad Mishra  | Sujit Kumar Mishra
Abstract: The earth is passing through global warming Mean sea levels rise, glacial melting, Icy sea depletion and frequent seismic activity. The climate change is regulated by the solar radiation, Milankovitch effect, contamination and pollutions, GHG gases, mineral and material remediation, Greenhouse effect, El Nio, La Nada and La Nia (ENSO) and North Atlantic Oscillations. The controversy of succeeding Anthropocene epoch is accepted from all corners. In the Anthropocene epoch, hominids have prompted to have a dooms day by biotic annihilation which is faster than expected in the present sixth extinction. The globe shall encounter depletion in population and species. Earth had experienced episode of extinction and extirpations by bio-annihilation of species whichwere location specific in 19th century. Due to negative cascading consequences, modern mass extinction in earth process is widespread and expedited. The implications of human-induced geo-chemo-biological changes have been studied in this paper and tried to establish that Anthropocene epoch is an issue of stratigraphy but not a pop-culture.
