Will Captain Planet reboot works?
>>
>>77634347
Only if they make him black. Because having a multiethnic cast and mother Earth herself brown is not enough.
>>
>>77634560
That's not good enough. Captain Planet will only work as a plus-sized transgendered lesbian of color.
>>
Only if he mans the fuck up and puts down the villains, so there's no chance of them coming back to try and fuck earth's environment in the ass. The whole "but if we kill we're no better" is bullshit. Just cap the bitches and move on.

I don't think it would work. Maybe a new cartoon with a similar concept, but I don't think a serious Captain Planet revival would work.
>>
>>77634347
No reboot ever works. People don't understand that success is a lottery and it's impossible to replicate a prior success by trying to redo what was once successful. They're part of the zeitgeist and they only work in that specific time frame. Generally speaking, no reboot will ever be as popular as the original -- if anything, 25% of the original popularity would be a success, but expectations of anything greater should be extinguished.

Looten Plunder was the classic '80s businessman. He didn't care about anything but dem dolla bills.

Sly Sludge was all about cheap dumping of garbage and waste.

Hoggish Greedly was usually about gas-guzzling giant bullshit polluting vehicles.

Duke Nukem was a horrific nuclear monster who just wanted to make the world more comfortable for one such as him.

Dr. Blight was fucking insane.

But Verminous Scum was just straight-up an asshole. Everything he did was pretty much just because fuck you.

While a country develops it fucks the environment terribly before they start caring about the effects it causes to the people and start cleaning up the mess.

I think a Captain Planet that is actually useful in its lessons would be good.

What good is it in saying all this things are bad when its impossible not to do them? Yeah, cars are polluting, pity I need to get to work in one. So why not get a low-capacity motorcycle? With traffic how it is you'll probably get to work quicker on a 50cc moped than your fuel guzzler you have now.

Or how about pointing the finger, not at capitalism, but throw-away consumerism? If we lived in a society where efficiency and longevity were what was demanded by the people, and not a new version every two years? We'd have technology that uses a fraction of the resources to produce and lasts 20 years.

That's what has always annoyed me about morals in a lot of the cases. They're never really very helpful.

Uh. Global warming is a direct result of actual pollution. When billions of people dedicate 200+ years to destroying the planet literally as quickly as they possibly CAN, shit adds up.

Exactly. Imagine being attacked by birds, wasps, spiders, cockroaches, squirrels, wolverines and mountain lions all at the same time!

The thing is that while the country is developing the government just don't give a fuck about anything that is not profit and development. It took a long battle from the affected ones to change things so the government would start supporting more green alternatives.

High pollution industry is cheaper but causes more damage on the population, in countries where the population is cheap and disposable there is not much reason to worry about going green.

If they stop support north korea, one of two thing happens: North Korea collapses and then refugees migrate into China (like what is happening now in Europe) except China is nowhere near as rich as the combined EU. or two reunification and then you have a weakened Korea, but with an American military presence. To the leadership neither position is tolerable.

Anon, throw-away consumerism is a business model that maximizes profits while minimizing costs.

You literally can build everything to lower specs that way and you'll get rewarded with threee times the sales, at a price point that has been set for you by people who used to build high-specs machines and tools.

One funny thing about "baaaw that country eats something I'm uncomfortable with" is that they are always complaining about Japan hunting whales but since I arrived in Japan I only saw whale meat in the supermarket once and it was imported from Iceland.

>>77643381
I think the Nordic countries get away with it for the same as the Eskimos. Underrepresented minorities who eat it based on traditional and religious practices. Going against them is asking to be painted the bad guys.

Also at one point I remember one group did get on their shit for hunting seals, and now I think it's Iceland or Greenland that won't even hear what environmentalists have to say because of the bad blood.

>>
>>77643381
I do remember one stupid Facebook article about the people in the Faroe Islands hunting these types of whales to extinction because rituals and stuff but Denmark was getting all the flak
>>
>>77643552
I think it is more about politics. If there were some reason to annoy the Nordics them they would paint them as some backward guys doing stupid backward traditions instead of saving the whales.

If people were really into conservation they could control hunt and not ban it. Because by allowing the consumption you are creating a reason for them to keep the population healthy and abundant.
>>
>>77644246
The average Joe groups all whales in a single category and repeat any shit they are told. The article you mentioned is a great example of that. Does Faroes Islands hunts a lot of whales, specially considering their tiny population? Yes! Is this a problem? No! They hunt long finned pilot whales that are abundant. But just because there are endangered whale species people consider any whale hunting bad independently of the species. It is like ban deer hunting because there is a species of deer endangered in the other side of the world.

>>77644667
That is because amongst the big 2 communist countries (China/USSR) neither had any clear environmental policy or consciousness of environmental degradation. The overall philosophy was nature in the service of man, but never about preservation and conservation. They had laws on the books, as window dressing which no one followed due to lack of enforcement. Honestly even the Nazis were better than them on that front even though they had a similar outlook on the enviroment.
>>
>>77644972
environmental policy or consciousness of environmental degradation only arises after lots of serious shit happens. This happened in Europe, happened in USA and even Japan where trees, rivers, mountains etc are holy fucked the nature until they contaminated a bunch of people with mercury and clogged the sky with smoke, only them they realized the shit they had done and did a 180 turn.
