James Lovelock on The Hour

James Lovelock is an independent scientist; he works in a lab that used to be a barn in Cornwall , England .

For years now, he's been sounding the alarm on climate change.

He says we can't undo the damage we've done and that by the end of this century many places on earth will be unlivable.

If that weren't bad enough, most of the human race will be wiped out.

So, we shouldn't waste our time trying to reverse climate change.

Instead, he says we should focus on finding ways to survive the inevitable ahead.

He lays it all out in his new book 'The Vanishing Face of Gaia.'
