Gill speaks to Washington Post about the anthropocene

The Washington Post interviewed Jacquelyn Gill, associate professor of paleoecology and plant ecology with the University of Maine School of Biology and Ecology and Climate Change Institute, for an article about geologic records in Canada’s Crawford Lake reflecting human history’s impact on the environment. “Formalizing the Anthropocene creates a hard and bright line, and you either exist on one side or the other. But really, it’s been a long gradient, a long process of changing how we live,” Gill said.
