Humans ruined everything. They bred too much and choked the life out of the land, air and sea.

And so they must be vaporized by half, or attacked by towering monsters, or vanquished by irate dwellers from the oceans’ polluted depths. Barring that, they face hardscrabble, desperate lives on a once verdant Earth now consumed by ice or drought.

That is how many recent superhero and sci-fi movies — among them the latest Avengers and Godzilla pictures as well as “Aquaman,” “Snowpiercer,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Interstellar” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” — have invoked the climate crisis. They imagine postapocalyptic futures or dystopias where ecological collapse is inevitable, environmentalists are criminals, and eco-mindedness is the driving force of villains.

But these takes are defeatist, critics say, and a growing chorus of voices is urging the entertainment industry to tell more stories that show humans adapting and reforming to ward off the worst climate threats.

I Call Bull: A total article about nothing.

Climate change and over population are two very different things and its the doomsday scenarios that create tension and entertainment for the audience

If there's no conflict either mental or physical it wont make for much of a film really will it!
Thanos getting rid of the plastic from the ocean wouldn't really be big box office!

Hollywood knows how to tell a story and a utopian future with no conflict doesn't make for as much entertainment
