The persistence of apathy

The 1967 Hammer film Quatermass and the Pit happened to come on TV tonight and I was struck by a line which does seem to accurately predict humans’ reaction to climate change. I went looking for the script and came across this YouTube clip (“Quatermass and the Pit (1967) predicts reaction to climate change”). Clearly others thought this to be an impressively prescient piece of writing from Nigel Kneale.
