about

James Lovelock''s The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning is a prophetic message for mankind from one of the most influential scientists of our age.

James Lovelock''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, and how life as we know it is going to change forever. Only Gaia, he shows, can help us fully understand this, and prepare us for the future.
