Uipotesis some ways the worse fate in store for us is that of becoming conscripted as gala physicians and nurses of a geriatric planet with the unending and unseemly task of forever seeking technologies to keep it fit for our kind of life—something that until recently we were freely given as a part gaoa Gaia. Lovelock has suggested that global biological feedback mechanisms could evolve by natural selectionstating that organisms that improve their environment for their survival do better than those that damage their environment.

A significant argument raised against it are the many examples where life has had a detrimental or destabilising effect on the environment rather than acting to regulate it. It involves action at a personal level. Because we are city dwellers, we are obsessed with human problems. Another influence for the Gaia hypothesis and the environmental movement in general came as a side effect of the Space Race between the Soviet Union and lovwlock United States of America.

Gaia hypothesis

This new statement of the Gaia hypothesis was more acceptable to the scientific community. Their replacement by cropland could precipitate a disaster that is global in scale.

Even environmentalists seem more concerned about the loss of a year or so of life expectation through cancer than they are about the degradation of the natural world by deforestation or greenhouse gases—something that could cause the death of our grandchildren. When on the basis of this evidence, I reanimated the view that we were standing on a superorganism rather than just a ball of rock Lovelock, ;it was not well received.


According to the historian D. We have at last a reason for our anger over the heedless deletion of species and an answer to those who say it is mere sentimentality. Compositional and other changes associated with the presence of Life”.

Biological modulation of the Earth’s atmosphere. If this action happens to be locally beneficial to the environment, then it can spread until eventually a global altruism results.

Ocean salinity has been constant at about 3. The CLAW hypothesisinspired lovelpck the Gaia hypothesis, proposes a feedback loop that operates between ocean ecosystems and the Earth ‘s climate.

Gaia hypothesis – Wikipedia

The Gaia hypothesis posits that the Earth is a self-regulating complex system involving the biospherethe atmospherethe hydrospheres and the pedospheretightly coupled as an evolving system.

These new jamed models demonstrate that as diversity increases so does stability and resilience. Processing of the greenhouse gas CO 2explained below, plays a critical role in the maintenance of the Earth temperature within the limits of habitability.

In the past loveloc years these criticisms have been answered—partly from new evidence and partly from the insight provided by a simple mathematical model called Daisy world. Once dead, the living organisms’ shells fall to the bottom of the oceans where they generate deposits of chalk and limestone.

However, the composition of seawater is far from equilibrium, and it is difficult to explain this fact without the influence of organic processes. In such case we would have all the visible attributes of a living thing, which we do not realize to be such because it is too big, and its life processes too slow.

It was all too easy to lose sight of the picture in the searching and sorting of the pieces.

Retrieved 1 December It has been suggested that the results were predictable because Lovelock and Watson selected examples that produced the responses they desired.

Later, other relationships such as sea creatures producing sulfur and iodine in approximately the same quantities as required by land creatures emerged and helped bolster the hypothesis. In some versions of Gaia philosophyall lifeforms are considered part of one single living planetary being called Gaia.

Turn recording back on. By taking the species and the environment together, something no theoretical ecologist has done, the classic mathematical instability of population biology models is cured. A New Look At Evolution. Rather than a discussion of the Gaian teleological hipotrsis, or lovelck of Gaia hypotheses, the focus was upon the specific mechanisms by which basic short term homeostasis was maintained within a framework of significant evolutionary long term structural change.

Responding to this critique inLovelock stated, “Nowhere in our writings do we express the idea that planetary self-regulation is purposeful, or involves foresight or planning by the biota “. During the “philosophical foundations” session of the conference, David Abram spoke on the influence of metaphor in science, and of the Gaia hypothesis as offering a new and potentially game-changing metaphorics, while James Kirchner criticised the Gaia hypothesis for its imprecision.

Hipotesiss accusations of teleologism ceased, following this conference.
