Before you beat me up this is a fun posting with opinion(s) from ‘Me’ and UK Scientist James Lovelock.
UK scientist and inventor James Lovelock claims we should stop trying to save the planet from global warming and retreat to climate controlled cities. Saving the planet from climate change is ‘beyond our ability’ and we should stop wasting time trying to tackle global warming.
James Lovelock, who first detected CFCs in the atmosphere and proposed the Gaia hypotheses, said “society should retreat to ‘climate-controlled cities’ and give up on large expanses of land which will become uninhabitable.”
I don’t think it’s time to through in the towel just yet.
“Britain is no longer a world power and we need to leave such schemes to the USA, Japan or China. We should spend out efforts adapting Britain to fight climate change.” James said that ‘Not Me!
“We may have wasted valuable time, energy and resources by trying to grapple with climate change on a global scale.
“It sounds good to try to save the planet, but in reality we are not thinking of saving Gaia, we are thinking of saving Earth for us, or for our nation. The idea of ‘saving the planet’ is a foolish extravagance of romantic Northern ideologues and probably much beyond our ability.”
“In a changing climate cities are most less vulnerable to external heat than our individuals. If most of us lived in cities, as it seems we soon will do, the regulation of the climate of these cities might be far easier, more economic and safer option in a hot climate than the regulation by geoengineering of the whole planet.”
Big Smile In my humble opinion James is spending far to much time in his favorite Pub debating climate change with his bartender and not enough time in his lab doing ‘real’ climate research.
