    Gaia hypothesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The study of planetary habitability is partly based upon extrapolation from knowledge of the Earth's conditions, as the Earth is the only planet currently known to harbour life
    The Gaia hypothesis, also known as Gaia theory or Gaia principle, proposes that organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a self-regulating, complex system that contributes to maintaining the conditions for life on the planet. Topics of interest include how the biosphere and the evolution of life forms affect the stability of global temperature, ocean salinity, oxygen in the atmosphere and other environmental variables that affect the habitability of Earth.

    The hypothesis was formulated by the scientist James Lovelock [1] and co-developed by the microbiologist Lynn Margulis in the 1970s.[2] While early versions of the hypothesis were criticized for being teleological and contradicting principles of natural selection, later refinements have resulted in ideas highlighted by the Gaia Hypothesis being used in disciplines such as geophysiology, Earth system science, biogeochemistry, systems ecology, and climate science.[3][4][5] In 2006, the Geological Society of London awarded Lovelock the Wollaston Medal largely for his work on the Gaia theory.

    Dang, SS, you are as ignorant about that hypothesis as you are about science in general.

    So you are saying that your religion has successfully infested science?

    What better way to staunch protests at worsening economic and life conditions than to make it feel like an honourable job/duty of the people to save "Gia". At the same time, they used this "science" as new pagan religion to further push out the Christianity they hate and despise and most of all, fear? Gia worship, the earth "mother", has been pushed in popular culture oozing out of the West for a better part of the past 1.5 decades. This is a religion replete with an army of priests, called Government Grant Scientists.[/quote]

    It is hard to droun out the ring of truth....wherever it comes from.[/QUOTE]

    How much money is given to science from any source? Do you know what Chinese dollars are?

    Billions upon billions from governent. More than 7 billion in 2012 from the US govenment alone. Who do you think climate science answers to?

    The drought in the US is costing more than a hundred billion. Many other weather disasters have exceeded that 7 billion dollars in the last three years by themselves. Not only that, I am willing to bet that the 7 billion you quote is that amount spent on weather study of any kind in that period, whether is had anything to do with AGW. You see, you have already established your basic dishonesty here.

    Naw, we are saying that you are just too Goddamned dumb to understand what the hypothesis stated.

    For decades, the UN has been all over using global warming to promote wealth redistribution around the world. They even have a guide on-line but Im too tired to find it and post it up. Many of you have seen it already. The UN doesnt even try to hide it anymore. The IPCC is the biggest fraud outfit on the planet.

    Do you have the first bit of actual evidence that we have had anything to do with the drought. It isn't even a particularly bad drought inso far as droughts go. There have been many worse years since we started keeping records. 7 worse years since the 30's with 5 of them being prior to 1960. What caused those droughts rocks? What evidence do you have that the trigger for the not so great drought of 2012 was different than the really bad droughts of the past?

    I am afraid that it is you who is having trouble understanding. Actual understanding is difficult to achieve from the standpoing of one who has fallen for a hoax.
