Gaia Guru Recants, Slams UN, “Sustainable Development”

 On the occasion of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro,  one of the environmental movement’s most prominent gurus has gone heretical, claiming that “so-called sustainable development ... is meaningless drivel.”

On the occasion of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro,  one of the environmental movement’s most prominent gurus has gone heretical, claiming that “so-called sustainable development ... is meaningless drivel.”

We’re referring to Gaia guru James Lovelock, the British inventor, NASA scientist, and environmental philosopher best known for originating the Gaia hypothesis and for his trilogy of books on that subject, including Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth, and The Revenge of Gaia. Gaia, of course, is the Greek goddess of Earth, the New Age deity adopted by, or even worshipped by, many environmentalists.
 
In the video here, The New American’s Senior Editor, William F. Jasper, comments on Lovelock’s recent conversion.
