EARTH DAY – James Lovelock, Gaia theory #earthday


Video: Interview: James Lovelock on how to save Gaia @ Science guardian.co.uk

James Lovelock is best known as the father of Gaia theory: the idea that the planet acts like a single organism. His latest book is The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning. In an interview with Nature, he defends his forthcoming trip into space, and suggests that the technology for reversing climate change may be within our grasp

His latest interview / quote is pretty hardcore…

Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change from radically impacting on our lives over the coming decades. This is the stark conclusion of James Lovelock, the globally respected environmental thinker and independent scientist who developed the Gaia theory. “I don’t think we’re yet evolved to the point where we’re clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change,” said Lovelock in his first in-depth interview since the theft of the UEA emails last November. “The inertia of humans is so huge that you can’t really do anything meaningful.”
