    We had the Renaissance, Victorian era, Industrial Revolution etc etc.

    What do you think this epoch will be known as?

    You can be serious or jokey, it’s all good!

    It won’t be called anything. You assume that there will be someone to write the history.

    I’ve always thought we’ll be seen as the most wasteful most polluting period in human history, at least I hope it improves in future! At least this year maybe less polluting might set a trend so perhaps the Environmental Revolution over next couple of decades. Wishful thinking?

    I think the Information Age has been and gone. I think our current moment is defined more by miss information.

    Er. You do realise that the industrial revolution led to industries which were far more polluting than we are now. Added to infrastructure problems which led to issues like sewage being dumped raw into the streets and rivers & I think you are displaying a lack of appreciation of the world we have now.

    By the end of this year, more than half of all industrial emissions of carbon dioxide since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution will have been released since 1988 — the year it became widely known that these emissions are warming the climate.

    The Electric Age.

    In much the same way the Stone and Iron Age were how those resources influenced the ‘growth’ of humankind.

    Imagine your life without electricity. Sobering thought eh?

    Unchecked capitalism.

    I think in a few hundred years we’ll look back and realise how crazy it was to just believe the lies propagated that the markets work for everyone’s best interests.

    Apologies in advance…

    I have no idea what this time will be known as when it is finally officially named, however, once it is, I’m pretty certain it will go viral

    Unchecked capitalism.

    I find the off thing is that despite we’ve lived quite happily and obliviously in a capatilist framework for years, the observational attempts to gain capatislist advantage – e.g. Sports Direct, £150 Hand Sanitiser on Amazon – are disgusting to many people, and the fit healthy and well minded types are wondering where all this government money is suddenly coming from.
