Celebrities drive hybrids, Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize, and supermarkets carry no end of so-called "green" products. And yet the environmental crisis is only getting worse. InSurviving Gaia's Revenge, the eminent scientist James Lovelock argues that the earth is lurching ever closer to a permanent "hot state"and much more quickly than most specialists think. There is nothing humans can do to reverse the process; the planet is simply too overpopulated to halt its own destruction by greenhouse gases.In order to survive, mankind must start preparing now for life on a radically changed planet. The meliorist approach outlined in the Kyoto Treaty must be abandoned in favor of nuclear energy and aggressive agricultural development on the small areas of earth that will remain arable.A reluctant jeremiad from one of the environmental movement's elder statesmen,Surviving Gaia's Revengeoffers an essential wake-up call for the human race.
