While I may not agree with the machine metaphor. I like the how this article describes the earth a complex feedback system through the story of one particular species.

” The more we learn about ecosystems, the more obvious it becomes that we won’t save the Earth until we admit that our planet is a giant, incredibly complex machine that can be programmed. And, with enough study, it can be reprogrammed, too. ”
