The discussion reminds me of the excellent National Geographic series on the Jamestown settlement. A number of geologists want an epoch divider set in geological time to the arrival of Europeans in the Americas, a time they now refer to as the "Columbian Exchange", when much of the words ecology became disrupted by plant,insect and microbe species being exchanged between the Old World and New. I was surprised to find out that the honeybee was a European introduction, as was the lowly earthworm, both of which decimated a particular plant specie and soil structures that supported them that produced a tuberous root the Eastern Indian tribes depended on for food in times of drought or extreme cold. Events of this type were happening world wide.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
