The following movie amazes for its beautiful and high-definition rendition of the presence of human presence on the scale of a whole planet.

The movie "Welcome to the Anthropocene" [vimeo.com] developed by global education organization Globaia reveals the start of a new geological era dominated by humans, by visualizing its main infrastructure, such as cities, roads, railways, transmissions lines and underwater cables.
