Social critic and peace activist Noam Chomsky is the most cited public intellectual of today.
His works in linguistics, philosophy and cognitive science have earned him the title the “father of modern linguistics”. His critical publications on mass media, politics and globalization have put him on the forefront of civil activism starting as anti-war activist in the 1960s and now as supporter of the Occupy movement.

(to the music of “The Times They Are A-Changin’ ” by Bob Dylan)
Come gather ’round people who count earth as home,
And admit that the sea levels around us have grown,
And accept it that soon we’ll be drenched to the bone.
If our future to us is worth savin’,

For the climes they are a-changin’. Continue reading

Global warming is real – and possibly even worse than we’ve been told. Could it lead to the destruction of human civilization within just a few decades? For tonight’s Conversations With Great Minds – I’m joined by Guy McPherson -Professor Emeritus of Natural Resources – Ecology – and Evolutionary Biology at the University Arizona. Guy is one of America’s most influential experts on global warming – and writes about a variety of climate change-related issues for the Arctic News and his own website – Nature Bats Last. In the field of climate science – Guy is best known for his assertion that runaway global warming is already on a path to cause the extinction of the human race – an idea he has written about in his book – “Going Dark.”

Noam Chomsky interviewed by Javier Sethness Castro at MIT on 28 March 2014. The conversation revolves around the present and future role of anarchism, anarcho-syndicalism, and indigenous struggle in terms of the profound ecological crisis we confront today as a result of capitalist hegemony.
Many thanks to Patrick Wilson, Suren Moodliar, and Dan Kontoff in terms of logistics, and to Sasha Ross, John Clark, and Paul Messersmith-Glavin for advice on the questions.
