    DescriptionThe global temperature is rising, the ice caps are melting, and levels of pollution across the world have reached unprecedented heights. According to eminent scientist James Lovelock, in order to survive an assault from her dependents, the Earth is lurching ever closer to a permanent hot state. Within the next century, we will almost certainly be forced to give up many of the comforts of western living as supplies are threatened. Only the fittestand the smartestwill survive. A reluctant jeremiad from one of the environmental movements elder statesmen, The Vanishing Face of Gaia offers an essential wake-up call for the human race.
