This Is The “Most Dangerous Moment In Human History,” Stephen Hawking Warns
The majority of people are sick of the status quo and feel they have been “abandoned by their leaders,” writes renowned physicist Stephen Hawking in a recent Guardian op-ed warning that the rise of Donald Trump and Britain’s Brexit vote come at “the most dangerous time in the history of the human race.”
Having previously referred to the president-elect as “a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” Hawking appears to blame the ignorance of the people for Trump’s victory…
‘It was, everyone seems to agree, the moment when the forgotten spoke, finding their voices to reject the advice and guidance of experts and the elite everywhere. ‘For me, the really concerning aspect of this is that now, more than at any time in our history, our species needs to work together,’ he added.
As RT notes, Hawking says the world is facing crippling challenges, including climate change, food production, overpopulation, the decimation of other species, epidemic disease and acidification of the oceans.
