Fidel Castro foresaw serious challenges of climate change

Fidel Castro foresaw serious challenges of climate change. Taken from Radio Habana Cuba.Fidel Castro Ruz, historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, warned almost 30 years ago that collective and urgent action was needed to combat the destruction of the Earth’s environment. In this prescient five-minute speech at the UN Earth Summit, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 12, 1992, Fidel rightfully laid the blame squarely on capitalism’s rapacious nature as the cause of the environmental crisis. He spoke for the peoples of the planet — and Earth itself — suffering from the effects of underdevelopment and imperialism’s super-exploitation. Fidel’s revolutionary, socialist perspective on this urgency for humanity rings truer than ever today.
