Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Will Tackle Climate Change

Interstellar Climate Change

Director Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi flick Interstellar will reportedly deal with climate change and its effect on the future of mankind.

Trying to pin down a specific plotline for the Dark Knight Rises director’s next cinematic effort has been difficult in recent days. With the exception of a very vague plot synopsis, Nolan has chosen to keep details under wraps for the time being.

However, a recent article from the Fort Macleod Gazette revealed that Interstellar will focus on mankind’s struggle with climate change. In order to save the human race, scientists decide to jump through time in search of new crops.

Here’s how writer Frank McTighe explains the scenario:

Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.

Until the Fort Macleod Gazette dropped this nugget of knowledge on fans, there wasn’t too much information about Interstellar available online. The official synopsis released by Paramount and Warner Bros. is extremely vague.

Here’s the official descrption:

‘Interstellar’ chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

While plot details might be scant for the time being, the cast is certainly no secret. The Inquisitr previously reported that Elysium star Matt Damon has signed on for a role in Nolan’s project.

The film already has a number of talented actors and actresses working to bring the story to life. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine are counted among the cast.

    How do you news editors and politicians and goose stepping believers get away with saying a climate change crisis WILL happen when science has never agreed on anything past "could be" and have never said it "will be" a deadly crisis? Who's the fear monger?
    *Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.
    Just what does have to happen now for science to agree it will be an inevitable crisis as they drag us closer to the “could be” point of no return from the ever popular; potential of unstoppable warming?

    There is scientific consensus that climate change this century is man made and significantly threatening to the biosphere and to human life. The risk of doing nothing, in any logical mind, far outweighs the decarbonisation of our economy (which must be done anyway).
