By: James Lovelock
177 pages, 4 colour plates, 16 b/w illus
New installment of Lovelock's writings on Gaia, in which he argues 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. This includes an acceptance that nuclear energy is a necessity in order to counter global warming.
"Lovelock will go down in history as the scientist who changed our view of the Earth [...] The Revenge of Gaia is the most important book ever to be published on the environmental crisis."
– John Gray
