Simply explained, the Gaia Hypothesis, proposed in the early 1970s by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis, argues all of planetary life works autonomously to maintain environmental conditions within a narrow range of habitability, or in a dynamic state of constancy, via a long list of biological self-regulating mechanisms. In sum, Gaia Hypothesis argues the planet is self-regulating. Gaia has been of particular interest relative to the what the climate crisis poses for our survival since it has been interpreted in two radically different ways. One in which we have accountability or a moral duty to defend Gaia and another whereby the planet is resilient or immune from human-caused global warming.
