Last update January 12, 2014:
James Lovelock on Technocracy:
*At the time of this interview Lovelock held the notion of an impending catastrophe (within the 21st century) that would reduce population numbers to under one billion people.
Min. 12. Morton prompts Lovelock about if he holds any hope that we can 'short circuit the system' and get wise and thoughtful without the suffering:
J Lovelock- "it may be possible if by some exceeding illegal and amoral kind of set up you selected the best, or what you thought the best of humans and formed them into a small society somewhere, that you may be able to dream up ways to doing this things and doing it now..."
O Morton- "but with what little intelligence we have now we can look back on the planet and we can send people to look back on the planet up in spacecrafts up until their 90th birthdays"
