Actress: If We Don’t Fight Climate Change Earth’s Landscape Will Look Like “Mad Max”
A desolate desert wasteland filled with desperate individuals clad in the leftover waste of a world long gone all fighting to survive. This is the future we are headed for if we don’t fight man-made Global Warming.
Actually it’s not.
But that fact hasn’t prevented an actress from recently putting her Progressive foot in her mouth by claiming it’s true. The Guardian reports that actress Charlize Theron, who starred in the upcoming “new” Mad Max movie, claims that if we don’t tackle man-made Climate Change the landscape of the world is going to resemble the silver screen and take on the look of, ironically, the Mad Max movie:
The actor Charlize Theron, who takes a leading role in the new Mad Max movie as a one-armed warrior driving five sex slaves to safety, has expressed her fears that a bleak future awaits the planet unless global warming is addressed.
The film is set 45 years in the future, in a post-apocalyptic world desperately short of water and fuel and ruled by a barbaric dictator who enslaves men and imprisons women for breeding and breast-milk.
“It felt very grounded in real events,” said Theron at a press conference for the film, which opens worldwide this week, following its gala premiere at Cannes on Thursday. “The idea of globalisation and global warming and drought and the value of water, and leadership becoming completely out of hand.”
Theron said that when she first watched a scene in the film depicting a terrifying thunder-and-sandstorm she wondered if it was a little far-fetched. “But there are images on Google right now of Sahara desert sand being blown, in that state, all through Africa. And that’s frightening. The hair lifted up on the back of my neck. What makes [the film] even scarier is that it is something that is not far off if we don’t pull it together.”
It’s nice to see that those who play pretend for a living, and can become so caught up in the fantasy world in which they spend most of their lives, can still find time to take up a second trade, like in this case, fortune telling. Granted they may not be very good at either. But it’s nice to see them expand their horizons.
