The Vanishing face of Gaia

Jo and Chuck have sent us links about James Lovelock’s latest book the Vanishing Face of Gaia.

Jo has sent us this link to this article:

Climate change will wipe out most life on Earth by the end of this century and mankind is too late to avert catastrophe, a leading British climate scientist said.

James Lovelock, 89, famous for his Gaia theory of the Earth being a kind of living organism, said higher temperatures will turn parts of the world into desert and raise sea levels, flooding other regions.

His apocalyptic theory foresees crop failures, drought and death on an unprecedented scale. The population of this hot, barren world could shrink from about seven billion to one billion by 2100 as people compete for ever-scarcer resources.

For the article which appears on the TVNZ site please follow this link.

Chuck offers us this interview given by James Lovelock on the 23rd February at the RSA.

For more information about this lecture you can find it at the RSA website.
