Enough war.  Let’s turn to science.  You know it as:

6.1 Science & the Environment

Think of everything we’ve covered thus far.  Humans are still relatively new in the Science game.  Here are the basics:

RAPID ADVANCES IN SCIENCE/TECHNOLOGY:

MEDICAL ADVANCEMENTS: 
Last era we lost Smallpox.  This era we lost Tuberculosis and Polio.  Also, Malaria! There are still many diseases with no cure; but they have become more treatable (keep in mind that some of these diseases remain in poorer areas). Also, AN ARTIFICIAL HEART! Are you blanking kidding me? The former vice president’s heart (Cheney) is fake.  It’s a robot.  We had a cyborg Vice-President and no one freaked out.  I’m just saying.  That’s some craziness. Here's a timeline of some major medical advancements:

Below are the major diseases that permeated the 20th and 21st centuries:

Not to be outdone: BIRTH CONTROL. Women finally had control over their reproductive systems.  Don’t skip over the birth control pill; demographically, it may be the most important innovation in science history.

ENERGY:
We got some pretty powerful stuff last century.  Mainly, OIL and NUCLEAR. Both have obvious side effects, but they are still in use around the world.

HUMANS vs. the ENVIRONMENT:
You thought Potosi was a mining operation. We are doing that all over the world on the reg. There are some consequences.  I’m talking GLOBAL WARMING (today we call it Climate Change). Not to mention the increased rate of extinction this era. The Cape Lion died out… It was a ten feet long lion! We gotta get cloning going better… I could deal with a 10-foot lion.  Awesome.

DEATH TECHNOLOGY… DEATHNOLOGY!
Not everything was healthy, and power producing or disease curing.  I’m talking weapons.  Big weapons. City destroyers.  Nukes.  Firebombing. Some really nasty stuff. This is why these Global Conflicts were so destructive…

ALRIGHT… ONE SECTION LEFT! 6.3… HERE WE GO!!!
