Dead Planet Walking.

James Lovelock: The Earth is about to catch a morbid fever that may last as long as 100,000 years.

That is the headline of an opinion piece in Sunday's Independent Online. Lovelock, a well-known and respected environental scientiest from the UK, say that we have already gone over the brink, screwed the pooch, passed the point of no return, and jumped the shark concerning global warming. It is a grim read, but Spotty recommends it to his readers. There are a couple of related articles linked in the piece, too.

Apparently, Lovelock has a book coming out entitled The Revenge of Gaia.

The only satisfaction that Spot draws from this is knowing the George Bush's grandchildren are going to have just as much trouble with the coming environmental catastrophe as Spot's.
