Sir James Lovelock
Did you ever wonder why Dr James Lovelock, the famed British scientist, co-creator of the Gaia theory of the Earth (along with Dr Lynn Margulis at UMASS in Amherst, according to sources), did you ever wonder why Dr Lovelock has never been knighted bu his Queen over there? I mean, they knight Paul McCartney and Richard Branson and Arthur C. Clarke, but why does the Queen overlook Sir James Lovelock, who at 88 and counting, does not have all that much time left on this plane of existence, maybe another ten years or so.
So, let's band together, you and I, dear Readers, all three of you, and see if we can persuade the Queen to so honor Dr Lovelock in his lifetime. Pro or con, the man has brains, he has used them, and his ideas and theories are worth thinking about, if nothing else. So: yes, let it be Sir James Lovelock, ASAP.
Now, just how does one go about asking for a knighthood for a bloke like Dr. L?
Any suggestions? Does the Queen have an email addy?
