A new era of positivity has arrived, at least for today and possibly even for tomorrow! This is thanks to the James Lovelock piece in the Guardian about his new book Novacene.
The logic goes something like this – we are human, we are part of nature, we are making the earth warm, we are creating horrendous environmental degradation, but that’s all part of Mother Gaia, part of our and her natural evolution. As humans and cyborgs, we will be smarter, we will solve many of these issues and asteroids pose a bigger threat to our survival than anything else. Mr Lovelock is very positive about our future, and by shifting concern from climate change to asteroids, I feel much more positive too, I hope it has the same effect for you too.
