Daisy world


This is an implementation of James Lovelock’s DaiyWorld model. This aims to show that even a very simple, artificial system is capable of regulating conditions to suit itself.

We consider a planet on which can grow black amd white daisies. Black daisies heat up the air around them; white daisies cool it down. The proportion of black and white changes as solar output increases, resulting in a reasonably uniform value for global planet temperature.
