    Descriptive info: James Lovelock: A man for all seasons.. - John Gray on James Lovelock, published in the.. New Statesman.. on 27 March 2013.. "Lovelock has sometimes been portrayed as a prophet of doom.. That picture has nothing in common with the man I have known for many years.. Cheerful, humorous and life-affirming, he is a passionate talker - and an equally passionate walker.. Last summer he moved with his wife, Sandy, to a coastguard's cottage in Dorset and he told me that the achievement of which he is most proud is walking the 630-mile South West Coast Path with her in 1999..

In 2006 the Geological Society awarded James Lovelock the Wollaston Medal, its highest award.. Great Thinkers - James Lovelock.. - Mary Midgley on James Lovelock, published in the.. on 14 July 2003.. "Lovelock is an independent scientist.. Though fanatically accurate over details, he never isolates those details from a wider, more demanding vision of their background.. He thinks big.. Preferring, as Darwin did, to work outside the tramlines of an institution, he has supported himself since 1963 through inventions and consultancies.. Reared in Quakerism, he remains, in his eighties, quiet, vigorous, amiable and intellectually explosive..

  • Title: Lovelock: Scientific papers.
    Descriptive info: Ocean pipes could help the Earth to cure itself.. - letter to.. Nature.. from James Lovelock and Chris Rapley, 26 September 2007.. "We propose a way to stimulate the Earth's capacity to cure itself, as an emergency treatment for the pathology of global warming.. The oceans, which cover more than 70% of the Earth's surface, are a promising place to seek a regulating influence.. One approach would be to use free-floating or tethered vertical pipes to increase the mixing of nutrient-rich waters below the thermocline with the relatively barren waters at the ocean surface.. Such an approach may fail, perhaps on engineering or economic grounds.. And the impact on ocean acidification will need to be taken into account.. But the stakes are so high that we put forward the general concept of using the Earth system's own energy for amelioration.. The removal of 500 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide from the air by human endeavour is beyond our current technological capability.. If we can't 'heal the planet' directly, we may be able to help the planet heal itself.. Failure of climate regulation in a geophysiological model.. - by James E.. Lovelock Lee R.. Kump,.. 369, 732 - 734 (30 June 1994).. "There has been much debate about how the Earth responds to changes in climate - specifically, how feedbacks involving the biota change with temperature.. There is in particular an urgent need to understand the extent of coupling and feedback between plant growth, global temperature and enhanced atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases.. Here we present a simple, but we hope qualitatively realistic, analysis of the effects of temperature change on the feedbacks induced by changes in surface distribution of marine algae and land plants.. Geophysiology, the science of Gaia.. - By James E.. Lovelock, Coombe Mill, St.. Giles on the Heath, Launceston, Cornwall, England.. Copyright 1989 by the American Geophysical Union.. Published in.. Reviews of Geophysics.. 17, 11 May 1989, pages 215-222.. "The Gaia hypothesis postulates that the climate and chemical composition of the Earth's surface environ- ment is, and has been, regulated at a state tolerable for the biota.. Gaia has matured and might be better stated as a theory that views the evolution of the biota and of their material environment as a single, tightly coupled process, with the self-regulation of climate and chemistry as an emergent property.. It is a theory that makes 'risky' predictions, for example, that oxygen is and has been regulated during the existence of land plants, within 5 of its present level; it is therefore falsifiable.. Numerical models are used to illustrate the potential for stable self-regulation of tightly coupled systems of organisms and their environments.. Oceanic phytoplankton, atmospheric sulphur, cloud albedo and climate.. - By Robert J.. Charlson, James E.. Lovelock, Meinrat O.. Andreae Stephen G.. Warren.. Vol.. 326 No.. 6114, 16 April 1987.. "The major source of cloud-condensation nuclei (CCN) over the oceans appears to he dimethylsulphide, which is produced by planktonic algae in sea water and oxidizes in the atmosphere to form a sulphate aerosol.. Because the reflectance (albedo) of clouds (and thus the Earth's radiation budget) is sensitive to CCN density, biological  ...   of different colours and was first described by Lovelock (1982).. The growth rate of the daisies depends on only one environmental variable, temperature, which the daisies in turn modify because they absorb different amounts of radiation.. Regardless of the details of the interaction, the effect of the daisies is to stabilize the temperature.. The regulation of carbon dioxide and climate: Gaia or geochemistry.. Lovelock and A.. J.. Watson, published in.. Planet.. Space Sci.. , Vol.. 30, No.. 8, pp.. 795-802, 1982.. (Received 12 September 1981).. Paper presented at the IAMAP / ICPAE Symposium "Origin and Evolution of Planetary Atmospheres", 17-18 August 1981, Hamburg, West Germany.. "This is a review of the Gaia hypothesis which postulates a condition of planetary homeostasis affecting chemical composition and climate.. Some criticisms are answered and a new model is introduced for the long term regulation of the mean surface temperature through the biological control of CO.. partial pressure.. Thermodynamics and the recognition of alien biospheres.. Lovelock, FRS, Department of Applied Physical Sciences, University of Reading.. Proceedings of the Royal Society B.. 189, 167-181 (1975).. "A distant view of the Earth in this context shows that certain of its thermodynamic properties are recognizably different from those of the other terrestrial planets, which presumably are lifeless.. The general application of this test for the remote detection of other biospheres will be discussed, as will some implications of this way of viewing biospheres on the nature and organizations of life on Earth.. Atmospheric homeostasis by and for the biosphere: the Gaia hypothesis.. Lovelock and Lynn Margulis, published in.. XXVI (1974).. "During the time, 3.. 2 x 10.. 9.. years, that life has been present on Earth, the physical and chemical conditions of most of the planetary surface have never varied from those most favourable for life.. During this same period, however, the Earth's radiation environment underwent large changes.. As the sun moved along the course set by the main sequence of stars its output will have increased at least 30% and possibly 100%.. early after life began it acquired control of the planetary environment and that this homeostasis by and for the biosphere has persisted ever since.. Planetary Atmospheres: compositional and other changes associated with the presence of life.. - This paper by James E.. Lovelock and C.. Giffin was submitted September 1968 to the American Astronautical Society and published in.. Advances in the Astronautical Sciences.. 25, pp.. 179-193, 1969..

"Two of Britain's leading environmental thinkers say it is time to develop a quick technical fix for climate change.. Writing in the journal Nature, Science Museum head Chris Rapley and Gaia theorist James Lovelock suggest looking at boosting ocean take-up of CO2.. Their idea, already being investigated by a US firm, involves huge flotillas of vertical pipes in the tropical seas.. 26 September 2007.. Interview: James Lovelock on Climate Change.. - FirstScience talked to James Lovelock, a famous British environmentalist, scientist and author, about his views on climate change.. By Christine Carter, 2 February 2007.. "The climate change we re seeing now is closely similar to a geological event that occurred 55 million years ago, at the beginning of the period geologists refer to as the Eocene.. We re not quite certain how, but about two million million tons of carbon dioxide came into the Earth s atmosphere over a period of about 10,000 years.. I think the most likely cause was a volcanic sill: lava underground from a volcano coming up beneath a petroleum deposit in what is now the Norwegian Sea.. This vaporised practically the whole deposit and put a huge quantity of carbon into our atmosphere.. Controversial scientist predicts planetary wipeout.. -.. "Billions of people could be wiped out over the next century because of climate change, a leading expert said.. Professor James Lovelock, who pioneered the idea of the Earth as a living organism, said as the planet heats up humans will find it increasingly hard to survive.. , 29 November 2006..
