The Great Acceleration refers to the exponential growth in human-environment related activity during the latter half of the 20th century as many indicators to economic consumption and production increased at an exponential rate, that are yet to slow down. This period of the Great Acceleration is unique in the history of human existence as it involves unprecedented human-induced planetary­-scale changes in Earth’s systems.
