Episode details

Danny and Derek welcome back Spencer Ackerman, publisher of Forever Wars, to discuss his new piece in The Nation, “US Foreign Policy Has an Extinction Agenda”. The group gets into the article’s bleak analysis of where US foreign policy is headed in the era of climate collapse, which includes American declarations of world cooperation despite pursuing a cold war with China and arming Ukraine, fear-mongering around inevitable upticks in migration to the global north, whether the international left has a chance of affecting policy around climate change, and more.
