Noam Chomsky warns against a Green New Deal that would save capitalism instead of dismantling it in an extended interview from Planet B: Everything Must Change.
The eminent activist and political writer talks to Dalia Gebrial about his vision of a Green New Deal and the lessons we can take from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s original political project.
Chomsky also laments the fate of the Amazon and explains why we must centre the demands of Indigenous peoples in order to bring about a just transition.
An extract from this interview appears in episode two of Planet B, a podcast series made in partnership with Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung London.
Look out for more Planet B episodes and extended interviews in the weeks leading up to the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow (COP26).
