Amy Goodman Interviews Christian Parenti

Thursday, Jun 30, 2011

The new era of climate war is upon us. Extreme weather brought on by global warming is unleashing cascades of unrest and violence across the globe, from Africa to Asia to the Americas. Christian Parenti reports from the front lines of this gathering social and environmental catastrophe. Combining historical insight with on-the-ground reporting, he shows how environmental crisis is colliding with the twin legacies of Cold War militarism and unbridled free market economics to cause fragile nations to disintegrate into failed states. Those living in the privileged Global North must recognize that our own future security is inextricably linked to the fate of the struggling nations of the Global South.

Join Amy Goodman for an interview with Christian Parenti, author of the new book, Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence published by Nation Books.

Sponsors: Demos, Democracy Now! & Nation Books
