Answer:

The Gaia Hypothesis is that the earth itself is a conscious enitiy

Explanation:

The Gaia Hypothesis is used a rational for the conservation of the earth. If the earth itself is a conscious entity then it deserves the respect given to living organisms.

There is no empirical evidence that the earth is a conscious entity. To some people that the hypothesis can be used to justify environmental issue is sufficient reason for believing in the Gaia Hypothesis. For other people there are sufficient other reasons to support environmental issues and there is no need for an unsupported Gaia Hypothesis.
