Is ‘Game of Thrones’ Covertly All About Climate Change?

One of the worst things about the climate change debate is that it’s largely been hijacked by politics. That’s why this particular post finds itself in the politics category and not in the disaster or environment categories.

Let alone in the entertainment section.

And usually when politics and governments take over an issue, then you get a situation something akin to what we see in the Game of Thrones series as discussed in the above Vox video.

There’s plenty of skullduggery.

Just press play. You’ll  enjoy the theory put forward, even if you don’t agree with the pro-climate change stance that it holds.

I’m all for taking care of our shared environment and living a minimalist life (by choice), but if I was to be categorized anywhere on the climate change issue, I’d currently be like Peter Dinklage’s character Tyrion Lannister as per the video.

At least the guy has a sense of humor, even at the toughest of times.

End of the day though, Games of Thrones is just another fantastical American TV series with too much onscreen sex and unnecessary in your face violence. But it is addictive.

You could also replace the Game of Thrones climate change analogy with radical Islam if you really wanted to. The White Walker zombies would just be the crazy jihadist butchers from ISIS.

Maybe the next big plot twist of the popular series is that the White Walkers are really just a big band of pussies, or they’re just a distraction for something else that’s crucial to mankind’s existence.

It’s possible.

As life likes to do, Game of Thrones loves turning things upside down.

So what do you think? Is climate change the boogie man that many make it out to be?
