Earth Day, and Chomsky's big brain
Last updated 4/22/2021 at 10:02am
A friend recently noticed my Gnome Chomsky in the backyard – a fabulous little garden creature in the likeness of Noam Chomsky, standing above the spring flowers.
It reminded me that I have not written about Mr. Chomsky since the column entitled, "I ♥ Noam Chomsky," but this Earth Day 2021 reminded me that his voice is among my favorites.
Chomsky recently referenced the well-known biologist Ernst Mayr when he said that if we do not act quickly in response to the environmental crisis we are proving that in evolution, "human intelligence is indeed a lethal mutation."
A lethal mutation?...
