About this book
Following on from the success of "The Revenge Of Gaia", Lovelock looks at the environmental problems we will all face in the 21st century, which are much worse than previously thought: the ice-caps are melting, and water shortages and natural disasters are getting much more frequent and common. 'A prophet who deserves every honour the human race can bestow' Peter Forbes, "Guardian"
The author's Gaia theory, the idea that our planet is a living, self-regulating system, has transformed the way we see our planet and what is now happening to it. In this book, he distils a lifetime's wisdom and observation of the Earth to reveal the rate at which our climate is altering, how conventional 'green' measures are not working.
