The Age of Stupid (2009) is a 90-minute film about climate change, set in the future. Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (In The Name of the Father, Brassed Off) stars as a man living alone in the devasted world of 2055, looking back at footage from 2007 and asking, why didn't we stop climate change when we had the chance.
The Age of Stupid is a 90-minute film about climate change, set in the future. Not a book, but quite thought provoking!
