"For millennia, humankind has exploited the Earth without counting the cost. Now, as the world warms and weather patterns dramatically change, the Earth is beginning to fight back.

This short book, written at the age of 86 after a lifetime engaged in the science of the earth, is his testament."--Jacket

The vanishing face of Gaia : a final warning by James Lovelock( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lovelock first began thinking that the planet resembles a living entity in the 1960s, while working for a NASA project on how to detect life on Mars. While other scientists suggested elaborate tests involving space probes to check for microbes in Martian soil, Lovelock said to save the rocket fuel, we didn't even need to bother going there. Life, he theorized, would leave its telltale signature in a planet's atmosphere. There would be chemicals or elements that shouldn't be there but for the existence of something unusual, like living things. Anyone looking at the Earth from afar could tell right away that it had to harbour life because its atmosphere is loaded with oxygen, a gas so chemically reactive it shouldn't exist at all in any quantity. -- from http://www.theglobeandmail.com (Dec. 17, 2015)
