Clever monkeys with technology

The kind of quote I enjoy:

I think we've got too high an opinion of ourselves. We're not that bright an animal. We stumble along very nicely and it's amazing what we do do sometimes, but we tend to be too hubristic to notice the limitations.

I don't think I'd heard of James Lovelock before, although I'd seen reference to the Gaia theory which I thought sounded a little too Mother Earthish for me. The interview is a bit of a ramble but delightfully contrarian and blunt.
