An interesting and candid interview with James Lovelock, the biologist who came up with the ‘Gaia Hypothesis.’ His take on global warming? We are decades too late to stop it and all the things we are doing now will have zero effect in the long run. Carbon offets? Worthless. Renewable energy? It will never work/ Recycling? A waste of time and energy. Sustainable development? Empty words and gestures. Instead of trying to save a world that is about to disappear, we should be preparing for the chaos and disasters we are heading towards at an alarming rate.
His advice to people? “Enjoy life while you can. Because if you’re lucky it’s going to be 20 years before it hits the fan.”
