Noam Chomsky: GOP Victory Amounts to 'Death Knell' for Humans

By Marc Morano

Professor Noam Chomsky has suggested that the election of a GOP Congress amounts to a "death knell for the [human] species." Chomsky, in an interview posted on The Nation's website, lamented the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives and gains in the U.S. Senate may spell doom for the human race.

"The latest election, a couple of days ago, you could almost interpret it as a kind of death knell for the species," Chomsky, an emeritus professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said in the video published on The Nation's website on Jan. 5, 2011.

Chomsky goes on to explain that the election of Republicans who reject man-made global warming claims posed "a danger to the survival of the species." "We're essentially saying, 'Let's kiss each other goodbye,'" he added.

Chomsky expressed anger that society was rejecting the man-made climate fears and he dismissed the views of skeptical meteorologists as just "pretty faces that present the weather forecast."

The Nation video also featured global warming and Peak Oil activists Bill McKibben, Nicole Foss, and Richard Heinberg.
