There is a documentary on 4OD which is worth checking out called 'What the Green Movement Got Wrong'. It's about the environmental movement from the '60's onwards. It juxtaposes 1970's predictions of population overload and attendant mass starvation with current dystopic visions around sustainable energy production. It focuses on nuclear energy and comes out in favour of it.Rightly so.
One of the main threads of the piece is how reluctant environmentalists are to admit they are wrong even in the face of overwhelming evidence. Although I agree with the arguments for nuclear power as against coal and wind / solar etc. the documentary fails to highlight the fact that even if we do manage to do something about the carbon issue we still have other devastating tipping points we shall fall foul of. In this respect the documentary is like so many other on that channel these days: not that great.
