James Lovelock says that you should “enjoy life while you can. Because if you’re lucky it’s going to be 20 years before it hits the fan.”
What do you think about his predictions in this recent article?
One thing I know for sure is that his “source of optimism” resonates with me:
“There have been seven disasters since humans came on the earth, very similar to the one that’s just about to happen. I think these events keep separating the wheat from the chaff. And eventually we’ll have a human on the planet that really does understand it and can live with it properly. That’s the source of my optimism.”
I find his sentiment to be similar to yesterday’s Life As a Wave post. I have great hope in our evolution as a species, even while our current situation looks so grim.
While we are busy evolving, let’s also take his warning to heart as another reason to enjoy life, as he suggests.
