The Earth just passed a dangerous global warming benchmark from which there is allegedly no return. Now, some scientists say the planet is already doomed, and for humanity to survive, we need a Plan B.
Philosopher scientists James Lovelock, who established the Gaia theory 30 years ago, argues we should ditch the planet and save humanity.
Instead of focusing worldwide efforts on saving a doomed planet we could make more progress if we focused on preserving the species. If we gave up the idea of living on huge tracts of land, most humans could live inside climate controlled cities while others colonized space.
The most important thing is preserve the continuity of the species.
