Influential scientist, futurist, and inventor Dr. James Lovelock, often called the godfather of the environmental movement, continues to walk back his previous doom-and-gloom predictions of a global warming climate change catastrophe.
He also claims that self-replicating robots who are hardly affected much by the weather will be running the show within 80 years.
Professor Lovelock, 97, is probably best-known for his “Gaia” model of the earth as a single organism.
Ten year ago, he predicted in a book that billions of the world population were doomed to die as a result of climate change and that humanity was past the point of no return. He also predicted that the relatively few survivors among the human race would be clustered in the more tolerable Arctic Circle area.
In 2014, however, he described the environmental movement as becoming more like a religion that is not based on facts He added that “It’s just as silly to be a denier as it is to be a believer. You can’t be certain.”
In a newly published interview with the Guardian, he again deemed the green movement a “totally unscientific” religion.
