Author(s): Noam Chomsky
Nuclear War and Environmental Catastrophe is a focused discussion on the existential threats of today and their points of intersection since WWII. Both nuclear war and environmental catastrophe have the potential for similar outcomes: a world made uninhabitable by the scarcity of water, food and liveable land. In a series of interviews, Noam Chomsky warns that further postponement of nuclear disarmament and the failure to source sustainable energy will condemn the human species to catastrophic conditions in the very near future.
