Less than 4 billion years after the emergence of life on Earth, our planet is now crowded with one dominant megafauna: humans. The last 50 years were critical and are now known as the "great acceleration" in human acitvities. This animation shows the spatial extension and intensity of our global civilization. Time has come to collectively wake up and act accordingly to what we know of current global change. Earth is our past, present and future. It is our life support system. We belong to its beautiful, rare and precious ecosphere.
