Christian Parenti talks with Bill Resnick about his latest book Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence. It traces
· the collapse of many countries under the pressures of neo-colonialism and neo-liberalism that extract resources and keep the nations impoverished,
· militarism and the prevalence of weapons and highly armed thuggery,
· misrule by kleptocratic elites, and
· climate change, that the Pentagon calls a "threat multiplier."
