Outlet: Anthropocene

Anthropocene: The researchers were led by Michael Manfredo of Colorado State University and Alia Dietsch of Ohio State University, both of them social scientists who specialize in nature-related values. In the new study they investigate the origins of this anthropomorphic trend, which has been linked to modernization: as people become more prosperous, educated, and urbanized, they ostensibly become disconnected from lifestyles that involve hands-on subjugation of animals.
