Put history into a flowing context using Emiliani's fair-to-all-humans Holocene Era calendar reform idea.

Cesare Emiliani proposed the HE Calendar Reform Idea and died a few years after his proposal. He was the Italian-American scientist who founded Paleo Oceanography and Project "LOCO" (Long Cores) at the U.S. National Science Foundation. Emiliani wanted a calendar system making dates fair to all humans planet-wide, without bias based on color, sex, country, or sensibility.

The University of Miami Ricther Library houses Emiliani's archives. The Special Collections library assistant says this website and the HE Timeline eBooks give "meat and bones" to Emiliani's HE Calendar Reform idea.

Kurzgesagt calls it the "Human Era”. Emiliani called it the "Holocene Era”. Cavel calls it the "Holocene Epoch". OK, we won't quibble. They are all the same idea with different names… like eggs, juevos, and eufs are all different names for the same thing.

Kurgesagt has over 13 million YouTube subscribers and these wonderful videos which illustrate Emiliani's HE Calendar Reform idea.
