“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Geological Time in a Few Seconds

A glacier calving, the most massive one ever captured on film. It is calving because of global warming, which is because of the Anthopocene, which is how human history now intersects with geological time. Thanks to Rick Muller. From the movie Chasing Ice.
