Soylent Green for Everyone

By Steve Evans

Tump's censorship of scientific environmental information on government websites this week got me to thinking about an old movie, because that's how my mind works, and I realized we're just six years away from the dystopian future portrayed in Soylent Green (1973). The film shows the social consequences of global warming, dying oceans, urban decay and overpopulation. It's based on the novel Make Room! Make Room! by Harry Harrison. Bleak, with a twist ending that was shocking in its time and remains potent today.

On the upside, Soylent Green is 100 percent organic.
