Humans are altering Earth atmosphere so much, heating and polluting it, because of which many scientists are going toward a new mode to define the time we live in. They're naming it the Anthropocene (AN'-thruh-poh-seen) or the age of humans. However maximum non-experts don't understand it, science names the past 12,000 years as the Holocene, a Greek meaning "entirely recent." But in a mode which humans and their productions are changing the planet, specifically its climate, has triggered a growing number of scientists to use the term "Anthropocene."
