May send a different message than Hollywood intended
"To most of us, it came as a surprise. Not many understood. Too few cared enough to stop it. Then, it no longer mattered how many understood or cared. It was too late.
The beginning of the end came in the late '70s. The climate changes... the energy crisis, the shortages, the high costs of growing and transporting grain, the lack of government support for research programs. The disappearance of arable land beneath the monoliths of reinforced concrete and steel as the urban centers continued their unchecked sprawl into the countryside. The industrial pollution that poisoned the earth, the water, and the air. And the continuing growth of population out of all bounds of reason. More and more people, less and less food.
By the end of the '70s, the fabric of society was breaking down in most parts of he world... And then, the bubble burst."
So begins a cautionary tale from the sages in Hollywood, who even thirty years ago were desperately trying to warn us unwashed masses about the dangers of climate change facing us. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
So what is "The World's Scourge" as described in the movie's tagline? GLOBAL COOLING!
Draw your own conclusions.
P.S. - This would make a great double feature with "An Inconvenient Truth".
