Infinity war

At first glance you might not suspect Avengers infinity war previous record holder for the highest opening weekend gross, the fastest film to ever gross 1,5 billion and became the highest-grossing film in 20181   to be interpret as having an environmental message but it surely does.    

Spoiler alert!!!! In infinity war we witness Thanos snapping his fingers which kills half of existence in the universe. Watching are beloved heroes turning to dust made most of us tear up, we couldn’t believe what was happening 19 years of the MCU phase four finally coming to an end. In theory this is a good thing if you take some time to think about it. Presently there is 7,714,576,9232 on planet earth so if half the population vanished into dust, we would be left with 3,857,288,462 humans left on earth. The average carbon footprint of an American is 21,53 (21,500 kg) metric tons of CO2 according to University of Michigan I’m using Americans as my primary examples because they pollute our planet more than anyone else. So, if we do some math, we are producing 165,863,403,844,500 kg of CO2 witch we can assume isn’t the best for the atmosphere. By dividing that by two we get 82,931,701,922,250 which is still a big number but much smaller than the previous. Witch would help climate change because there is less CO2 in the air.  

Weve been so focused on making changes to help slow down climate change have we ever thought to realize that we just need a genocide to solve our problems?

  1. Great job, Kane! I completely sympathize with what you’re saying. Most people don’t realize that genocides and wars are what has solved multiple crisis in human history, like getting out The Great Depression in the 30s and 40s. With history as a point of reference, what do you think will cause and/or be the next world changing event?

  2. Kane Grant, no wonder you got an A in math, great job. Infinity War is one of the best Marvel movies ever made. But I also saw the environmental message behind the story, what you said was true, if you do think about what Thanos did, which is killing half of humanity, I wouldn’t consider it as a bad thing either. It would cut all the pollution caused by humanity by 2, but I also do think genocide is pretty extreme. If people still don’t take in consideration that what they do in life affects our earth in so many ways, what do you think would be the next step for humanity, in terms of getting better and making our earth a healthier place?

  3. Hi Kane, I see your point of view. I saw the environnemental message in this movie and I understand where you’re coming from, but I think that genocide is a little bit too far. Killing a particular ethnic group or nation is not the answer. If you think about it, who is going to be killing, who is going to end up killed and who makes these two decisions? A genocide is an act of war and should not in any way be used as a resolution to our problems.
