The effects of humans on the Earth are so profound, scientists have taken to calling this era on the planet the "Anthropocene." 

And while it may be easy for us anthros to wonder how to slow or stop climate change, hand-wringing is not universal. 

People around the world are making surprising efforts to reverse the trend, efforts detailed in Gaia Vince's book Adventures In The Anthropocene

From artificial glaciers to painted mountains to smaller-scale efforts, she found a lot going on. 

Vince joins us with details.
