“Don’t Look Up” on Netflix: what do the scientists say? – Telerama.fr

-

Posted on December 24, Adam McKay’s farce of SF is already in the top 3 of the most viewed titles in the history of the platform. “Télérama” asked scientists if this scenario seemed to them to be a good metaphor for the climate crisis.

Saying that a movie about a comet has reached stratospheric popularity is probably a little easy. And yet, this time, we are bordering on the understatement. Since Christmas, all of humanity seems to be looking in the same direction: not above but straight ahead, their eyes riveted on a television or smartphone screen. Objective: see Don’t Look Up: Cosmic Denial.

On social networks, everyone seizes the hashtag #DontLookUp. Activists, academics, journalists, political parties… If Adam McKay explained that he used the killer comet as a metaphor for global warming, everyone projects what they want into this crystal ball that the film has become in three weeks.

One of the assumed goals of the company is to rehabilitate the scientific word in public debate. ” The most infuriating, believes the director in Telerama, is that we have the tools to fight this danger [le réchauffement climatique, ndlr], such as renewable energies. Above all we have science, our sword Excalibur, the most powerful of our assets. During the promotion of its cosmic blockbuster, Netflix has also put a lot of emphasis on the scientific adviser of the film: the astronomer Amy Mainzer. So, mission accomplished? Don’t Look Up does he manage to restore the tarnished aura of science ? We asked eminent researchers, but also a science historian and a science journalist to judge.
