Stephen Hawking Says Only Cooperation Can Save The Planet
Stephen Hawking cautions against global isolationism.By Grant Suneson | December 1, 2016
Lately, Stephen Hawking has been less focused on scientific breakthroughs and more worried about warning people what the future of Earth could be if it continues on the present trajectory.
The Guardian published a letter from Hawking where he warned that recent divisive votes like the election of Donald Trump and the U.K.'s decision to leave the EU are backlashes against growing inequality across the world.
In the letter, Hawking argues that now is the time to come together to support the poorest among us by working together as a global community, instead of insulating ourselves in nationalism, as Brexit and Trump aim to do.
