The Gaia Hypothesis


The Gaia hypothesis is an idea that the Earth is a living entity. In my energy and sustainability class we talked about how the Earth is a self-cleaning organism. My professor talked about how the Gaia hypothesis was an idea explored by many in the field of sustainability. Interesting connection huh?
