Evidently Wall-E, a new animated movie from Pixar, argues if we do not curb our consumption we will destroy the world. According to an article in Slate critics have widely welcomed the outlook it expresses:

“So what is this powerful and profound message? Wall-E tells us that if we don’t change the way we live, we’ll all get really fat and destroy the world. The plot begins with the idea that a megacorporation called Buy N Large has essentially taken over the planet and induced so much consumption and waste that humans must escape their dying planet on an enormous, space-faring cruise ship. Once onboard, their self-destructive tendencies only get worse: After 700 years adrift, humans have grown too bloated to walk and too lazy to think.”
