The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis. Originally proposed by James Lovelock as the earth feedback hypothesis,[1] it was named the Gaia Hypothesis after the Greek supreme goddess of Earth.[2] The hypothesis is frequently described as viewing the Earth as a single organism. Lovelock and other supporters of the idea now call it Gaia theory, regarding it as a scientific theory and not mere hypothesis, since they believe it has passed predictive tests

Deep Ecology is a holistic approach to facing world problems that brings together thinking, feeling, spirituality and action. It involves moving beyond the individualism of Western culture towards also seeing ourselves as part of the earth. This leads to a deeper connection with life, where Ecology is not just seen as something 'out there', but something we are part of and have a role to play in.
Gaia termed developed by James lovelock was to articulate a relationship between earth and human, Gaia which means Greek goddess Earth or Earth mother as some say is itself alive as nature as James meant.The pysical components as biosphere,atmosphere,ocean,soil are self regulating as living life, and it has maintained a homeostasis despite major changes happening.according to James lovelock theory ,the species has flourished which as helped Gaia to maintain the balance and to regulate while the one posessed threat has vanished.so respecting the environment and alternative like nuclear energy and renewable energy is the need of time as we are possing threat to the Gaia.

  2. its roots can be traced back to the nineteenth-century revolt against industrialization. Green Politics reflects concern about the damage done to the natural world by the increasing pace of economic development (exacerbated since the second half of the twentieth century by the advent of nuclear technology, acid rain, ozone depletion, global warming and so on), and anxiety about the declining quality of human existence and, ultimately, the survival of the human species. The Rio Earth Summit of June 1992 found political leaders from all over the globe discussing seriously the depletion of world resources; Ecology or green campaigners usually suggest that both capitalist and communist ideologies are part of the problem. Resources are being used up at an exponential (ever increasing) rate, whilst the healthy complexity of the ecology of the planet is being continually reduced by commercial agriculture and industrial pollution
