Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on How to Tackle Climate Change:
“We Must Go from Capitalism to Socialism”
by Democracy Now!
We speak with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez about climate change, the Copenhagen summit and President Obama. Chavez calls the COP15 summit undemocratic and accuses world leaders of only seeking a face-saving agreement.
“We must reduce all the emissions that are destroying the planet,” Chavez says. “That requires a change in the economic model: we must go from capitalism to socialism.” [includes rush transcript]
