The Anthropocene became known in 2000 to define a new geological age marked by the predominance of human impacts on Earth’s geo-ecology. It started with the invention of the steam engine in 1784 as the beginning of the industrial revolution. The Industrial Revolution cannot be separated from industrial capitalism which massively exploits fossil fuels and political violence to open new lands and extract natural resources for production.
The practice of industrial capitalism also has an impact on plantation expansion. The increasing human population has led to the expansion of plantations and the exploitation of natural resources which has led to changes in the global environment, including climate change, degradation of land and ecosystems, loss of species and biodiversity, depletion of stratospheric ozone, changes in hydrological processes and freshwater supplies, and pressures. on food production systems significantly affect human health and well-being. Evidence shows that this health impact has already occurred, such as the COVID-19 pandemic which has not entirely disappeared until now. The loss of global ecosystems and their services is one of the most pressing and challenging problems facing society in the 21st century, with comprehensive links to poverty, natural disaster risk, and disease.
Strong knowledge provides more reliable solutions and new ways of thinking about problems resulting from overexploitation of natural resources. Powerful Geography explains the relationship between an area and other areas, including natural resources, policies, politics, and morals. So that it can be a solution to problems caused by human activities in revealing the structures and processes that work in the world that lead to injustice, lack of democracy, and failure to realize other forms of sustainable development.
