Abstract
This article touches a few aspects of our awareness of the geological epoch humanity has created—the Anthropocene. It recalls some of the questions philosophers raised already a long time ago and puts emphasis on the development of the empirical basis of the science of the biosphere by V.I. Vernadsky. It stresses the grave impact of human-made climate change and expresses the hope that the sudden awareness of what we do, as witnessed by accepting the concept Anthropocene, will help to keep our planet and humanity on a sustainable track into the future.
