Noam Chomsky on climate change and environmental collapse

Noam Chomsky, 'The Human Species Has Never Faced A Question Like This’ (2016)

In an exclusive new interview Noam Chomsky reflects on the incredible period in human history we currently find ourselves in where climate change, and looming environmental collapse, threaten the very future of our species. 

Noam Chomsky reflects on how the economic and political system we've set up puts considerations of short-term profits ahead of the life-systems of our planet. In our interview, Noam Chomsky also shares his thoughts on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton stand on climate change, and why advertising has a distorting effect on our society.
