Another terrible attempt of fueling fear against all facts.
29 August 2020 | by tomasgoeddertzSee all my reviews

I honestly don't know where to start in this very poorly shot movie...

The idea that economic growth in general, and so with it every human achievement f.e. in the medical sector, has to stop now is simply lunatic! Instead of focussing on ways to grow sustainable and maybe deliver some ideas of how this could be done this movie literally adds no content or value to a potential resource crisis.

Yes economic growth has its limits, resources are becoming scarce and there are still too many people in this world who suffer from poverty. But (!) the amount of people suffering from poverty has decreased dramatically over the last decades and is continuously decreasing (Check Gapminder or UN numbers on global incomes). Opposed to the opinion of this movie in fact people around the world benefit from the economic growth! Again, I am not saying that the distribution of wealth is not an issue, nor is the greed of people that is causing the uneven distribution. But a general slender of economic growth is simply not fact based! Same also accounts for farming. In the movie the opinion is stated that the end of industrial farming will be the beginning prosperity of organically farming... Okay, this is really where I had to stop as I do not want to travel back in Middle Age times... oh and tell that the 10bn people in 2050 that have to be fed.

I would highly recommend the director of this movie to do more appropriate fact checks before they shoot another movie. Although I would recommend to not shoot any more to be honest.

I had to turn the movie off after an hour, what a waste of time and money, and I only paid 4 bucks...
