Stephen Hawking – the greatest mind of modern times – gave a speech that he had recorded shortly before his death in which he lambasted both Brexit and Trump, which he saw as great dangers to the future of mankind.
In the final speech, which was aired yesterday at the launch of his last book he pulled no punches.
He warned that both Brexit and Trump were fuelling a global revolt against experts.
He enumerated his greatest concerns for mankind which included the following:
Soaring global population
The rapid extinction of other species
The need to develop renewable energy sources
The degradation of the oceans
and Epidemic diseases.
I don’t think I would have made a list that was much different to that myself.
The world has lost a huge mind who recognised the dangers we face. Unfortunately we are being lied to and led by selfish, greedy, ideological morons.
Stephen Hawking entreated us to ‘Look at the stars and not our feet!’
He warned that both science and technology research was in the greatest danger and that we were in danger of becoming more culturally isolated and insular.
He said that both Brexit and Trump were leading a global revolt against experts and scientists with dire consequences.
Thank you Stephen. We’ll all miss your intelligence and perceptiveness!!
Meanwhile we’re left behind here with the moronic, fear-ridden lies of May and Trump. A plague upon the two of them!
