The Dystopian Movie "Don't Look Up" Comes To Life As Climate Activist Clashes With Interviewers

Mitchell Kay

The wildly popular movie with stars like Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jennifer Lawrence depicted a "fictional" future of an apocalyptic event that destroys humanity as we know it.

Many of the scenes show Jennifer Lawrence's character desperately asking the government and the media to take action, but nobody wants to listen.

Although this movie might have been fictional for now, a climate activist is seen being belittled in an interview about a recent oil protest on live television.

Richard Madeley and climate activist Miranda Whelehan can be seen going head to head in an intense interview on "Good Morning Britain".

Whelehan appeared on "Good Morning Britain" on behalf of the climate activist group "Just Stop Oil". In the interview, she is being asked about the motives and outcomes of a recent protest that attacked oil production.

Standing alone, Whelehan is verbally attacked by the other hosts who claim that she is being childish and that her reasonings for wanting to stop oil is unrealistic and unnecessary.

The interview racked up millions of views on twitter within days and many people said that Richard Madeley was being misogynistic and patronizing by the way he smoke to Whelehan and dismissed her statements.

At the end of the interview. Whelehan talks about how the Just Stop Oil movement is aimed at stopping new oil permits in order to make the effort to switch to renewable energy that will sustain the world population.

She goes on to say that if we were to stop all new oil fields and oil permits that we have enough oil supply to last eight years as the world switches to renewable energy.

She insisted that if we don't act now, there may be no hope.

You can find the full interview on the "Good Morning Britain" Youtube channel.
