Solution

The correct option is B James Lovelock
The Gaia hypothesis also known as the Gaia theory or the Gaia principle proposes that organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a synergistic self-regulating, complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet. Topics of interest include how the biosphere and the evolution of life forms affect the stability of global temperature, ocean salinity, oxygen in the atmosphere, the maintenance of a hydrosphere of liquid water and other environmental variables that affect the habitability of Earth. The hypothesis was formulated by the chemist James Lovelock
