For Gen Y, the nightmare scenario is climate change. The evidence: the movies.
There is now a consensus on climate change and global warming, according to scientists. And actually according to the 80 million folks in Gen Y.
Our son Willie told me last week that the movie Godzilla was originally made by Japanese film makers in 1954, and that it was about the atomic bomb, which had just been dropped on their country. He says that the disaster movies today are often about natural disasters, and that's the parallel in experience, and nightmares, between Ge Y today and people in the 1950s. What do you think?
Gen Y is working hard, such as supporting trains, buying fewer tangible goods, living in more environmentally friendly ways, so they can avoid that nightmare experience.
