Planetary Chronology

from Geo- to Atmo-


That perverted world of uncanny forces [1] is now traded for insidious forces, as the pandemic slows Human’s tendency towards production. The relationship between Human and Planetary Nature(s) is complicated again by geo-temporal events.

For the whole of our adult lives, the economic model of continuous production  has apparently been at war with the natural. [2] This creates a tipping point, an edge for habitability. The pandemic brings economic precarity into relief, nudging the climate’s chronic emergency aside for more acute emergency.

The planetary scale chronic emergency that is the anthropocene is recorded in the record of time.

Will this global emergency be reflected in the deep geological record?
