I wrote in July that I thought there might be some difficulty making a live-action Captain Planet movie. I didn’t really factor in the possibility that the remake would cast environmentalism as eco-terrorism, but okay!
In all seriousness, there is something unfortunate about the perception that environmentalism inevitably involves extremism or sustained bossyness. Such is the fate of movements that involve people changing their behavior, I guess. It’s harder to get people more excited about innovation than they are annoyed by the idea that their actions contribute to anything bad.
