James Lovelock is a scientist famous for advancing the Gaia hypothesis, which basically states that the Earth is one giant self-regulating organism. Some (most notably Agent Smith in The Matrix) have looked at the destructive force we’ve chosen to inflict on the Earth through this lens and compared the human race to a virus. Of course, when our bodies become infected with a virus, we raise our core temperature in an effort to burn it off.
From today’s Globe and Mail:
The heat and humidity yesterday may have played a role in the collapse of an express lane on Highway 401 near Islington Avenue just after 3:30 p.m., police say. It remained closed last night.
