James Lovelock (1919-Present) is an independent scientist and environmentalist who proposed the Gaia hypothesis. The Gaia hypothesis is, essentially, the theory that Earth is a self-regulating organism. This hypothesis means to say that the Earth is a living being that humans are encroaching upon, and all parts of Earth are directly linked to one another. Lovelock is considered one of the great thinkers of the 20th century and is well-known for his incredible intelligence. He has been awarded numerous prestigious awards for his scientific breakthroughs, most unrelating to the controversial Gaia hypothesis.
