Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage’s newest film depicts a hollowed-out Earth, ravaged by the ill-effects of so-called man-made global warming.
Cage plays a political bureaucrat in “The Humanity Bureau” whose job is to exile those considered expendable on Earth, which has become ravaged by the ill-effects of so-called man-made warming.
The movie is another climate change-themed feature in Hollywood’s quiver — a quiver that includes moves like, “The Day After Tomorrow” and former President Al Gore’s, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
It also presents Cage’s decision to jump head first into Tinsel Town’s obsession with producing films directed at haranguing people about what the world could look like if global warming is not met head on.
The hero of “Con-Air” fame and more recent box-office wins like “National Treasure” joins the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, whose recent film, “Before The Flood” spends a disproportionate amount of time discussing DiCaprio’s evolution from a Hollywood playboy to part-time environmentalist.
DiCaprio’s thesis is that the fossil fuel industry, as well as conservative media, is helping to destroy the environment and that the only way to save earth is to motivate the public.
