WALL-E preaches a banally moronic, brain-dead environmental message. You know what we don't need? Hollywood movies reducing a complicated scientific and mathematical issue
into a retarded, one-sided slogan for little kids.
If you want to learn about the environment, read some textbooks or take a class. Hell, you're better off reading Wikipedia or websites offering differing perspectives. That way, you learn the relevant math and science, hear BOTH sides of the debate, and can ultimately make up your mind on which one is more persuasive.
But I understand that it's easier to form opinions on serious, complex world issues by watching an animated film for 8 year-olds whose main goal was to make hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide.
Which, by the way, goes for "The Lorax" as well.
