Chomsky and Pollin: Just Transition Can Stop Earth from Becoming Uninhabitable

>> Read interview published by Truthout

In an interview with C.J. Polychroniou, Noam Chomsky discusses the critical need to act now to heed the UN secretary-general’s warning that climate change is “making our planet uninhabitable." Robert Pollin addresses the importance of creating a just transition, to both support workers and communities that are presently dependent on the fossil fuel industry for their incomes and well-being, and to consider the ways in which high-income economies need to support the Green New Deal programs advanced by low-income economies.
