Noam Chomsky: Trump's Presidency Threatens Human Survival

Pin It
The presidency of Donald Trump will further isolate the U.S. from the world, but will also have a detrimental impact on climate change and world conflicts.

Prominent U.S. intellectual Noam Chomsky warned Monday about the possibility of a nuclear war and the further risks linked to global warming as a result of a Donald Trump presidency, during a speech for the 20th anniversary of Democracy Now!.

Commenting on the concrete implications of the Republican candidate's win, Chomsky said that the Iran nuclear deal could be reversed.

"Other countries who are parties to the deal might well continue," he said. "That means ignoring U.S. sanctions. That will extend U.S. isolation, even from Europe."

"Brexit may assist with (U.S. isolation) because Britain was the voice of the United States in NATO, the harshest voice," he added.

"The threats and dangers are very real," he said. Namely, the positions that Trump has taken in regards to climate change and the Iran deal pose a threat to the future of the country and the world."

"The threats that we now face are the most severe that have ever arisen in human history," he added. "They are literal threats to survival: nuclear war, environmental catastrophe."

"They became more urgent on Nov. 8, for the reasons you know and that I mentioned. They have to be faced directly, and soon if the human experiment is not to prove to be a disastrous failure," he warned. / CubaSi.
