   "Gaia" scientist says life doomed by climate woes

Wed Feb 25, 2009 5:17pm GMT

By Peter Griffiths

LONDON (Reuters) - Climate change will wipe out most life on Earth by
the end of this century and mankind is too late to avert catastrophe, a
leading British climate scientist said.

James Lovelock, 89, famous for his Gaia theory of the Earth being a kind
of living organism, said higher temperatures will turn parts of the
world into desert and raise sea levels, flooding other regions.

His apocalyptic theory foresees crop failures, drought and death on an
unprecedented scale. The population of this hot, barren world could
shrink from about seven billion to one billion by 2100 as people compete
for ever-scarcer resources.

"It will be death on a grand scale from famine and lack of water,"
Lovelock told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday. "It could be a
reduction to a billion (people) or less."

By 2040, temperatures in European cities will rise to an average of 110
Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) in summer, the same as Baghdad and parts of
Europe in the 2003 heatwave.

"The land will gradually revert to scrub and desert. You can look at as
if the Sahara were steadily moving into Europe. It's not just Europe;
the whole world will be changing in that way."

Attempts to cut emissions of planet-warming gases such as carbon dioxide
(CO2) in an attempt to reduce the risks are probably doomed to failure,
he added.

Even if the world found a way of cutting emissions to zero, it is now
too late to cool the Earth.

"It is a bit like a supertanker. You can't make it stop by just turning
the engines off," he said before the release of a new book on climate
change.

"It will go on for a long, long time. If by some magic you could
suddenly bring the C02 down, it wouldn't suddenly cool off."

SAFE HAVENS

Campaigns to promote recycling and renewable energy sources such as wind
and solar power are a waste of time, Lovelock adds, although he concedes
that nuclear power will help meet growing demand for energy.

While financial markets and politicians promote carbon emissions trading
schemes to reduce emissions and help the environment, Lovelock says
they, too, will have little effect.

"I don't see the efforts of governments around the world succeeding in
doing anything significant to cut back the emissions of carbon dioxide,"
he said.

Efforts should instead be focused on creating safe havens in areas which
will escape the worst effects of climate change.

In his book, "The Vanishing Face of Gaia," he adds: "We have to stop
pretending that there is any possible way of returning to that lush,
comfortable and beautiful Earth we left behind some time in the 20th
century."

The destruction of natural ecosystems for farmland, deforestation and
the rapid growth of the human race and livestock have all exacerbated
the problem, he added.

Scientists should not underestimate the crucial role of the oceans as an
indicator of rising temperatures and tool for reducing carbon dioxide,
Lovelock argues.

"Most of the Earth's surface is the ocean. That holds 800 times more
than the atmosphere or the land. And there is no question that the ocean
is steadily warming," he said.

A former skeptic of doom-laden predictions, Lovelock admits he is not
entirely comfortable with his role as a modern-day Cassandra, the cursed
prophetess of Greek mythology whose counsel was ignored.

However, he says the scale and speed of the looming crisis are so great
he must speak out. He is still struck by the public's apparent lack of
urgency about the problem.

"Don't blame me for the terrible predictions," said Lovelock, a
sprightly, trim figure with silver hair who looks younger than his age
and was soberly dressed in navy jumper, tie and casual trousers.

"The U.N.'s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) even in its
2001 report was suggesting temperatures by 2040 and 2050 that were
devastatingly hot. All I'm doing is drawing people's attention to it."

After much turmoil and eternal thanks to Sugar Seville

There's a new installation at the site. The particle count is low, about 
1/8 of what it was on Ian's Hybrid OCAD. I took out the other uneditable 
particle scripts from the building prims with a dead particle script. The 
object count is low. This should be ok for now. I'm documenting now so it 
doesn't have to remain. Selavy Oh is going to work with it and hopefully 
Doncoyote Antonelli will reinstall his piece. Thanks Alan

SELAVY OH and ALAN DOJOJI

have created a new work at the Odyssey site Second Life with Selavy Oh
which may or may not be up for a while, please have a look when you can.
The images are from the mess-up on Odyssey, the rollback and Sugar
Seville's experimentation with land texture, the new Odyssey piece, other
materials -

http://www.alansondheim.org/ newmess pngs and finalhours png (new ones)
love these -
