James Lovelock "We Humans are a Good Thing"
Playing for Team Human today, author, centenarian, environmentalist, futurist, and scientist, James Lovelock.
Lovelock joins Team Human to discuss his new book, "Novacene: The Coming Age of Hyperintelligence" which envisions a future where artificial intelligence and humans together will help the earth survive. On this episode, Lovelock and Rushkoff discuss the origins of the Gaia Hypothesis, the ways in which human beings can work to stop climate change, and the delicate nature of life on earth. In addition, Lovelock discusses the possibility of humans being alone in the universe and the likelihood that life developed on earth at all.
In his monologue, Rushkoff asks whether Team Human has become too radical.
