Saving the planet from climate change is ‘beyond our ability’ and we should stop wasting time trying to tackle global warming, a leading scientist has claimed
James Lovelock, who first detected CFCs in the atmosphere and proposed the Gaia hypotheses, claims society should retreat to ‘climate-controlled cities’ and give up on large expanses of land which will become uninhabitable.
Lovelock, who has just published his latest book A Rough Ride To The Future, claims we should be ‘strengthening our defences and making a sustainable retreat.’
“We’re reaching an age in history where you can no longer predict the future with any hope of success.
“We should give up vainglorious attempts to save the world.
“In a changing climate cities are most less vulnerable to external heat than our individuals. If most of us lived in cities, as it seems we soon will do, the regulation of the climate of these cities might be far easier, more economic and safer option in a hot climate than the regulation by geoengineering of the whole planet. “

An Ark is not such a silly notion in Florida.
At least the southern half has been predicted to be ultimately under water for a long time.
It seems to me that a Canary Island's induced Tsunami would devastate the whole state.
I know that's controversial . . . It doesn't seem all that logical to pretend that there will be 0.00000% problem from such a huge undersea landslide etc.
However, in terms of global warming . . . I think that's a stinking pile in terms of accusing man of causing it. I think it's much more a cyclical thing involving the sun and many huge systems changes that occur more or less naturally.
And, I don't think man can do much about it except like with Arcosanti etc.
