<<Shatner thinks that part of the appeal of Star Trek is that it shows humans as alive and kicking in 300 years’ time. He is not entirely convinced, though and becomes most animated, focused and serious when he talks about climate change. He clearly cares about taking steps to minimise global warming, rather than relying on jetting off to a different planet.

“I think this pandemic is a rehearsal for climate change. In 50 to 100 years from now cities will start going under water and we will lose arable land. And, at the same time, this pandemic shows us what can be done. The air is cleaner than it has been since the Second World War. The answer to global warming may just be this very thing – not the pandemic, but closing down and working without cars as much as possible.”

He leaves me with a small glimmer of hope and a call to action in his otherwise stark prognosis. “Things are going to change as a result of climate warming,” he says. “It is just a matter of whether it is catastrophic or if it is something that human beings can survive. That difference is between what we do now in the next 20 years.”>>
