Within days of the public posting in early April 2017 of his one hour speech the downloads for YouTube alone exceeded 100,000. Noam Chomsky spoke with such critical passion and urgency that this talk should have the widest possible distribution - so TUC Radio will carry it as well. It is a combination of a no holds barred critique of the Trump administration on climate change and nuclear danger.

The reason why this March 23 speech has become so popular - I believe - is that it not only brings into focus the looming danger - that can sometimes feel overwhelming - but puts it into context of history, global justice, indigenous rebellion and equity.

Chomsky investigates the reasons for our failure to address climate change, which he calls: the most awesome challenge (with possible exception of nuclear) that we are facing today. And in this part one of the talk he paints a picture of the US under Trump, virtually alone in the world heading actively for destruction, while most of the rest of the world is attempting to ward off catastrophe.

Noam Chomsky spoke at the MIT Starr Forum on March 23, 2017. He was introduced as an American philosopher, historian, social critic, and political activist. He is Institute Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he has worked since 1955, and the author of over 100 books.
