About this book

This book presents documentation and resulting perspectives regarding James Lovelock's multidisciplinary evolution theory. It looks at past and current climate changes and their consequences, including detailed accounts of global warming. The connection between climate trajectories and extreme weather events, including tropical and arctic fronts, cyclones, fire storms, tropical storms, acidification, tsunamis, floods, and sea level rise, are referred to in connection with recent developments. The book updates earlier accounts regarding extreme weather events and mass extinctions. The Trials of Gaia is published in honour of the late Professor James Lovelock (26 July 1919 – 26 July 2022), the father of the Gaia hypothesis.

He graduated from the Universities of Jerusalem and Western Australia, conducted extensive geological surveys in central and western Australia, studied the evolution of the early Earth crust in several continents, investigated the effects of asteroid and comet impacts on the Earth with reference to the mass extinction of species and studied the inter-relationships between human evolution and the climate. He has an impact crater and an asteroid named after him by Eugene Shoemaker, the late head of the United States Astrogeology Branch of the US Geological Survey.
