The anthropocene is the most recent geological time period of the Earth, in which human influence has been the key driver of ecological and geological changes. These environmental changes manifest in a multitude of ways, all which ultimately impact us. In 2019, intense fires sprung up on every inhabited continent on the planet. In just one year, 250,000 fires across the world resulted in almost 40 million hectares of land being burnt.
