New book - The Revenge of Gaia

James Lovelock
The Revenge of Gaia: why the earth is fighting back - and how we can still save humanity
Allen Lane, 2006, 333.7 LOV

In The Revenge of Gaia, James Lovelock brings his enlightening perspective to the environmental change debate. Illustrated with examples drawn from his experiences around the world, Lovelock draws many radical conclusions, most controversially a passionate advocacy of nuclear energy. This, he argues, is not only a secure, safe and reliable source of energy but also the most effective way to counter the lethal heat waves and rising sea levels, which will increasingly threaten our civilisation. Lovelock's argument is rooted in the belief that the only way for humankind to come to terms with Gaia now, and have a chance of surviving, is to embrace science and technology, not reject them.
