Forty years ago James Lovelock published his book ‘Gaia: a New Look at Life on Earth’, setting forth his hypothesis that all life on Earth is part of a co-evolved system that maintains the planet as an environment hospitable to abundant life. Today his theory is known as ‘Earth System Science’ and is central to our understanding of how the planet works. But back in 1979, he already had a warning for us.

It’s not just global heating. It’s a whole array of looming environmental disasters. Like the Gaian system itself, they are all connected: sea-level rise, deforestation and soil destruction, the loss of pollinators, ocean acidification, the rapid loss of species both macro and micro, etc. Our unlucky planetary maintenance engineers will have to cope with all of them at the same time.

If we get it wrong, and gigadeath or even extinction occurs, it’s more likely to be due to political failures than engineering mistakes.
