Against such a highly anthropocene background, local effects of a faltering ocean current can be particularly harsh. Take the western Sahel.

Stoermer originally coined and used the term Anthropocene from the early 1980s to refer to the impact and evidence for the effects of human activity on the planet earth. The word was not used in general culture until it was popularized in 2000 by the Nobel prize winner Dr Paul J Crutzen [1] The name Anthropocene is a combination of anthropo- from anthropos (Ancient Greek: ἄνθρωπος) meaning "human" and -cene from kainos (Ancient Greek: καινός) meaning "new" or "recent."
