British independent scientist, environmentalist and futurologist who lives in Devon, England. He is best known for proposing the Gaia hypothesis, which postulates that the biosphere is a self-regulating entity with the capacity to keep our planet healthy by controlling the chemical and physical environment.
A lifelong inventor, Lovelock has created and developed many scientific instruments, some of which were designed for NASA in its program of planetary exploration. It was while working as a consultant for NASA that Lovelock developed the Gaia Hypothesis, for which he is most widely known. He also claims to have invented the microwave oven.
Sy Scholfield quotes James Lovelock's book, "Homage to Gaia: The Life of an Independent Scientist" (Oxford University Press, 2001), p. 9: "I was born close to 2 pm in the afternoon of July 26, 1919, during a thunderstormand at my grandmother's house in Letchworth Garden City, which is about 30 miles north of London."
