Abstract

The control of fire plays a fundamental role in human history and cultural evolution. However, with increased anthropogenic combustion of fossil fuels—and, indeed, decreased combustion of biomass—fire acquires novel significance as a potent instrument of geo-technological agency. In this essay, human geographer Nigel Clark discusses fire as an integrative marker of the Anthropocene, positioning it at the momentous interface between Earth system changes and lithic strata.
