CentralTrak presents Next Topic: Nuclear War and Environmental Catastrophe by Laray Polk
CentralTrak's latest Next Topic will feature writer Laray Polk, who will discuss Nuclear War and Environmental Catastrophe, the recently released book co-authored by Noam Chomsky. Topics in the book will be explored in relation to Texas as it has over time become a dumping ground for the country’s radioactive waste.
The state has also become a convergent point for environmental activism over the controversial proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The discussion will include images of West Texas’ “Nuclear Alley" and acts of recent nonviolent protest in East Texas, followed by a Q&A.
