Lovelock, James:

The Vanishing Face of Gaia - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780141039251

ID: 779674

James Lovelock described his previous book, The Revenge of Gaia , as 'a wake-up call for humanity'. Stark though it was in many respects, in The Vanishing Face of Gaia Lovelock says that even though the weather seems cooler and pollution lessens as the recession bites, the environmental problems we will face in the twenty-first century are even more terrifying than he previously realised. The Arctic and Antarctic ice-caps are melting very quickly, and water shortages and natural disasters are more common occurrences than at any time in recent history. The civilisations of many countries will be jeopardised and life as we know it severely disrupted. Almost all predictions of the likely rate of climate change have been based on estimates which professional observers in the real worldnow show are consistently underestimating the true rate of change. As a global community we continue to be fixated by conventional 'green' ideas which we believe will help save our world. Lovelock argues that only Gaia theory, which he originated over forty years ago, can really help us understand the crisis fully. The root problem is that there are too many people and animals for the Earth to carry. And there is in fact only one possible procedure which might bring a permanent cure for climate change, but we are unlikely to adopt it. 'Our wish to continue business as usual will probably prevent us from saving ourselves' says Lovelock, so we must adapt as best we can and try to ensure that enough of us survive to allow a more capable species to evolve from us. There could hardly be a more important message for humankind. James Lovelock has been an active and accurate observer of the Earth environment since the 1960s and was the first to find CFCs and other gases accumulating in the air. His Gaia theory provides insight into climate change in the coming century.This is his final warning. Science Science eBook, Penguin Books Ltd

A Final Warning James Lovelock's The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning is a prophetic message for mankind from one of the most influential scientists of our age. James Lovelock's Gaia theory, the idea that our planet is a living, self-regulating system, has transformed the way we see our planet and what is now happening to it. In this book he distils a lifetime's wisdom and observation of the Earth to reveal the rate at which our climate is altering, how conventional 'green' measures are not working, and how life as we know it is going to change forever. Only Gaia, he shows, can help us fully understand this, and prepare us for the future. 'The most influential scientist and writer since Charles Darwin' Irish Times 'Supremely life-affirming ... The definitive statement of the Gaia theory and its implications for the future' John Gray, Literary Review 'Exhilarating ... Lovelock is the closest thing we have to an Old Testament prophet' John Carey, Sunday Times 'Gripping, convincing and indeed terrifying' Michael McCarthy, Independent 'Lovelock's writing has enormous warmth and vitality ... we need scientists such as him' Fiona Harvey, Financial Times James Lovelock is the author of more than 200 scientific papers and the originator of the Gaia Hypothesis (now Gaia Theory). He has written three books on the subject: Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth , The Ages of Gaia and Gaia: The Practical Science of Planetary Medicine , as well as an autobiography, Homage to Gaia . In September 2005 Prospect magazine named him as one of the world's top 100 global public intellectuals. Bücher / Fremdsprachige Bücher / Englische Bücher 978-0-14-103925-1, Penguin Books Ltd
