The World's Gone Mad? Oscar Night 2016

There certainly is a great selection of social issues covered in the films in the 2016 Oscar lineup. 
 I mean if fighting over and controlling the world's oil resources isn't bad enough, what happens when we start fighting over the worlds drinking water? 
At the end of The Big Short it was revealed that Christian Bale's real life character is investing his money and betting on the world's water resources. Hmm.
Mad Max: Fury Road also spells out that it's not only oil that future wars will be fought over, but also the fresh water.
Maybe it's time to really get going green instead of gold?
 There are a lot of issues in the 2016 Academy Awards in the Spotlight and it's good to see them not getting swept under Hollywood's Red Carpet for once.
 Let's not worry about life on Mars when we should be more worried about life on earth at the moment.
