I really liked The Revenge of Gaia and have a profound respect for its author, the famous scientist and environmental thinker James Lovelock and this, even if I find him particularly pessimistic.
This won’t change as for his first interview in a long time and after the huge failure of the Copenhagen climate summit, Lovelock believes Humans as a species can’t solve climate change.
Please read the full article as it is a great reflection on climate change and the necessary actions we need to take to address the issue.
Still comparing the climate crisis to a war, he believes we should suspend temporarily democracy to solve this urgent issue.
What do you think ? Is the situation as dire as Lovelock believes ? Can we act as fast as we need to ?
