But what does Nemecene actually mean? And what makes the epoch one of redress?
Let's disassemble the name and find out.
Epoch — a division of time less than a period and greater than an age. It is a particular span of history, especially one considered remarkable or noteworthy, as marked by an event, by a distinctive development, or a memorable series of events.
Redress — remedy or compensation for a wrong or grievance.
Nemesis — a long-standing rival; an archenemy.
Holocene — epoch which began approximately 12,000 years ago and includes the growth and impact of humans on the earth’s ecosystem. It is marked by the end of the last glacial period and is therefore considered an interglacial time span in the current ice age.
Pronunciation of Nemecene — pronounced as nemesis, with the “sis” replaced by a suffix “cene” and pronounced as “scene”.
