WALL-E: Pernicious and propagandistic

Frank Devine, writing in The Australian, makes the point that human concerns are being obscured by the “evangelical fervour” of proponents of human error as the cause of climate change, and gives another example of how Hollywood is acting as a mouthpiece for environmental extremists:

For further evidence of this, see the animated movie WALL-E from the Pixar studios, which contributed Finding Nemo and The Incredibles to our enjoyment.

Technically dazzling and dramatically engrossing, WALL-E is also pernicious and propagandistic.

It portrays an Earth 700 years hence so ruined by human depredation that humans have been driven from it. They float in space in giant cruise ships, grotesquely obese, almost too sluggish to think, served by robots as they consume, consume, consume.

It’s easy to imagine the reaction of children seeing WALL-E: “Poor Earth! Bad people!”

The article concludes with a quote from former Czech president Vaclav Klaus:

Today’s debate about global warming is essentially a debate about freedom. The environmentalists would like to mastermind each and every possible (and impossible) aspect of our lives.

Indeed so. Read it here.
