Transcript of an interview with Noam Chomsky discussing Donald Trump's denial of climate change and the dangers it poses.
So Trump is saying, "Yeah, let's make the global warming problem as dangerous and imminent as possible. Let's march towards destruction of the species, like we're destroying everyone else. And let's escalate militarization and, at the same time, sharply cut down resources by radical tax cuts, mostly for the rich, which means essentially eliminate pretty much the rest of the government." Incidentally, in that position, hes not very different from Paul Ryan, who's considered the intellectual on the Republican side. This is a really astonishing moment in human history, if you look at it.
