As soon as “civilization” deserved the name, it already had an impact on the environment it existed in, just as any organism necessarily affects what’s around it. When that impact started to become truly detrimental is debatable; my suspicion would be that humans got really destructive around the time of the Industrial Revolution in the late 1700s.
I would agree. People have always had an impact on the environment, but humans actions never became so dramatic and irrevocable until the Industrial Revolution, which saw accelerated technology, engineering, a population boom, and thus, more pollution.
