Peter Haff is a geologist, civil engineer, and physicist trying to expand our view of humans in the Anthropocene. The big picture is that humans are contingent components tied to the dynamics of a newly emerged Earth sphere—the technosphere. The technosphere is the global network of humans and technological artifacts, and the engine of the Anthropocene. Being Human in the Anthropocene focuses on constructing a physical framework for analyzing the challenges humans face as obligate components of the technosphere system.
Haff is Emeritus Professor of the Anthropocene and Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.
