As I said elsewhere, it's a failure of truth.
Any time they do these "Ceteris Paribus" simulations, they are doomed to fail. How on Earth, if I so ask, would any virus be able to spread in the
2070s? We're on schedule to cure cancer in the next decade and create microbe robots that can heal us in the following decade after that.
Ceteris Paribus simulations always fail because they fail to take into the fact that humans advance in technology exponentially. Every single thing in
star trek that was expected to take centuries to invent has been invented in roughly a few decades.
This thing was simply inaccurate. How would water levels rise while other places become droughts? Are the creators really blind to the obvious
contradiction there? Are we suppose to just stand around and do nothing when it would be so easy to simply run sea water through a filter and feed the
entire united states, thus lowering the sea level as well as solving the food problems?
Are the creators really so blind to see that fact that we could just bio engineer bacteria that would eat our pollution and produce from it oil
products, as well as plastic products?
Are the creators really so blind as to forget the fact that China and the US are probably going to begin competing for moon and space constructions
within the next decade? And were they even blinder to the fact that helium nuclear power would end any fossil fuel needs?
This series in all honesty was a fear mongering mess with a failure of truth and honesty, as well as a ridiculously lack of realism for how the world
would react. In WW2, Russia and the US were allies, where as no more than a few decades before they were hated communism vs capitalism foes in the
1920s. Of course, it returned to that afterward, but that's my point. When a little man with a square beard threatened their money and power, they
both put aside their hate and united. Am I suppose to believe that we couldn't do the same for disaster?
Not only that, but they act as if our pollution, if halted, will some how fix all problems. The undersea rivers that fuel the warming of the US coast
is, by the very laws of nature, temporary. By the act of water moving, that underwater river is slowly eroding away. It WILL end, and the US WILL
freeze over again. And you know what? We'll probably just build up a new wall under the sea.
Every single point in this series was made to sound like it's all our fault and if we don't bow down to the government's will, lead under
environmentalists, then the whole world would fail.
It is one sided, faulty at best, and a complete lie. Ceteris Paribus simulations, by their very nature, are never accurate nor true.
