James Lovelock talked about his book The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning (Basic Books; April 13, 2009). The award-winning scientist and originator of the Gaia Theory presented his latest prediction: that it is too late to reverse global warming; so it is time to concentrate on how to save humanity. He argued that scientists looking only at the actions of humanity in their assessments have overlooked the interconnected responses of the Earth. After his lecture, illustrated with slides, he responded to questions from members of the audience.
“A Living Earth” was a part of the Seattle Science Lectures presented with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store at Town Hall Seattle at 7:30 p.m. PT on June 15, 2009.
Mr. Lovelock has been a fellow of the Royal Society since 1974. close
