5×15: James Lovelock on A Rough Ride to the Future
Tue 1 Apr 2014, 19.00
James Lovelock on A Rough Ride to the Future in conversation with John Gray
What does the future hold and where is our species- and the planet – heading? Scientific visionary James Lovelock- who developed and became famous for the Gaia Theory – has now proposed a new perspective on what the future holds. In A Rough Ride to the Future he argues that man’s activities are responsible for accelerating evolution and we are changing our planet rapidly. But humanity has the capacity to contribute to – or even guide – the next evolution of Gaia.
Instead of feeling guilty about changing the atmosphere, Lovelock implores us to recognize what is happening, prepare for change and ensure that we survive as a species. Come hear the great scientific visionary of our age- now in his 95th year- in a rare public appearance. He will be in conversation with eminent philosopher, John Gray.
