Stephen Leahy interviews JAMES LOVELOCK the scientist who first proposed the Gaia Hypothesis

TORONTO, June 5 2009 (Tierramérica)

“When the first great climate disaster strikes, I hope we will all pull together just as if our nation were being invaded,” says British scientist James Lovelock in this exclusive Tierramérica interview.

Please throw something in the tip jar before reading on.
This is how I make my living.

  1. The MSNBC ‘faux’ interview with James Lovelock was PR gimmick: MSM got punked! I got the goods on this one. Ian Johnston an EDITOR at MSNBC not a reporter
    did the world a huge dis-service by pretending to conduct an interview with Dr Lovellock last week, it was a mere PR gimmick and I found the truth out by
    reading between the lines. The entire media got punked, left and right, from David Roberts and Joe Romm on left to Marc Morano and Anthony Watts on right, and the

    the last book on a trilogy on GAIA……

    don’t believe me ? read this and then ask me any question. MOST people even NYTimes got punked on this. Think about it

    How the MSNBC Ian Johnston take-down article on James Lovelock

I got the inside scoop here, if you care to know how MSNBC missed the boat on this one and threw a lopsided inside sinker that went nowhere and reported nothing but marketing hype for Lovelock’s 2013 book.

    Since when did MSNBC get into the PR and marketing business?
