Q: Why did you recently call the Republican Party “the most dangerous organization in world history”?
A: Take its leader, who recently applied to the government of Ireland for a
permit to build a huge wall to protect his golf course, appealing to
the threat of global warming, while at the same time he withdrew from
international efforts to address the grim threat and is using every
means at his disposal to accelerate it. Or take his colleagues, the
participants in the 2016 Republican primaries. Without exception, they
either denied that what is happening is happening or said maybe it is but we shouldn’t do anything
There have been many monsters in the past, but it would be hard to find one who was dedicated to undermining the prospects for organized human society, not in the distant future -- in order to put a few more dollars in overstuffed pockets."
