Gaia Scientist: Enjoy Life; Global Warming Will Doom Us All

Categories: Climate Crisis

The Guardian newspaper asked climate scientist James Lovelock—who formulated the Gaia hypothesis while working for NASA— what could be done about climate change. Lovelock's answer: Not much.

"There have been seven disasters since humans came on the earth, very similar to the one that's just about to happen. I think these events keep separating the wheat from the chaff. And eventually we'll have a human on the planet that really does understand it and can live with it properly. That's the source of my optimism."

What would Lovelock do now, I ask, if he were me? He smiles and says: "Enjoy life while you can. Because if you're lucky it's going to be 20 years before it hits the fan."
