Noam Chomsky: World ‘racing towards’ environmental catastrophe and nuclear war in 2014

In an interview with Salon’s Natasha Lennard, Noam Chomsky discussed some of the shocking revelations of 2013 and looked forward to the possible end of the world in 2014.

Chomsky pessimistically said of the “possibility of decent human survival.” We are “racing towards” environmental catastrophe and the growing threat of nuclear war, Chomksy claims, ” as if we were determined to fall off a precipice.”

He does, however, see some hope in efforts by indigenous societies to avoid these disasters.

“It’s beyond irony that the richest most powerful countries in the world are racing towards disaster while the so-called primitive societies are the ones in the forefront of trying to avert it,” he said.
