USA elections: climate change and nuclear power ignored


Romney and Obama: Too Cowardly to Discuss What Really Matters,Truth Dig  Oct 6, 2012 Andrew Rusk  Acclaimed social philosopher Noam Chomsky wants you to know that presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are ignoring two of the gravest threats to humankind: climate change and nuclear war.
