"Even now, man may be unwittingly changing the world's climate through the waste products of his civilization."

In case you're wondering, this clip is taken from a fifty year-old film. Fifty years ago they saw it coming. The scenario must have seemed pretty far-out, but I doubt anyone flatly denied that it could ever happen.

Now that the icecaps are melting, we seem to have developed a capacity for delusion that would have left the film's climatologist reeling.
