Idea for a horror movie:
It is the distant future. Multinational corporations are pumping toxic gasses into the atmosphere, unchecked at unbelievable volumes. Forests are being wiped out at phenomenal rates, resulting in erosion of huge areas of land; whole continents are being washed into the oceans, whose levels are rising and whose waters are acidifying, burning alive the flora and fauna that inhabit them. Global temperatures are on the rise. The ice caps are vanishing. Animal populations have diminished by 50% already and are still dropping at incredible rates. Diseases ravage poverty-stricken Western Africa, and are spreading into other parts of the world faster than they can be controlled. Tens of thousands of people die every day because they don’t have access to water or food, having been left in the dust by greedy western ‘civilisations’, whose economies are built on bankrupting their only hope for a future: their own student populations, and whose governments spend more money on campaigning for elections than foreign aid.
I call it… Today.
