James Cameron: "People need to wake the f*** up," Cameron told Variety. "We’re going the wrong direction as fast as possible. I like to say that we’re like Thelma and Louise. We’re driving straight toward the canyon at 90 miles per hour with the radio cranked up and the top down."
"We all drive around in our Teslas and our Priuses and think we are doing a great job, but really we’re all assuaging our liberal guilt. The real solution is: change the way you live."
"I think we’re the biggest freakin’ idiot civilization in history right now, and they’ll probably be talking about us 4,000 years from now scratching their heads—like they talk about Atlantis. Who are those guys? What did they do to piss off the gods so much that they’re buried under a hundred feet of mud right now?"
Cameron's wife Suzy said the company Verdient Foods focuses closely on the type of plants it grows to make meat substitutes. She argued that the world is headed toward a meatless future. "Look at the amazing success of Beyond Meat and the stock market. I mean, it’s not a trend — it’s actually the way the world is going," she said. "If you look at what the beef industry is investing in and what the dairy industry is investing in: They’re investing in plant-based milk and cheeses and yogurt and meat products."
Meteorologist: The DNC climate video introduced by Sigourney Weaver and from James Cameron was 'recycled footage from two years ago'
'The only problem with that segment is the drought in west Texas broke long ago. Currently, no part of Texas is experiencing drought conditions.'
'Apparently, the climate has been so benign that they couldn't find new more disasters to film since tornadoes are way down, there have been zero major hurricanes in the U.S. and the drought in West Texas ended. The same old footage of Hurricane Sandy has gotten tiresome.'
'The DNC movie repeated the same old lie that the rise in sea level the last 100 years is "largely due to climate change" when the rate of sea level rise hasn't changed since the end of the Little Ice Age.'
