What’s interesting about Avatar: The Path of Water is that, aside from some casual references, the movie’s plot is no longer based on extracting the stupidly named unobtanium element from Pandora. Instead, RDA is attempting to completely terraform Pandora for human habitation, as in the years following the release of the first Avatar movie, it appears that the Earth has become fully habitable (rather than just uninhabitable).
We don’t spend much time on Earth, but it seems like one of the biggest problems with a planet in the Avatar universe is that it’s overcrowded. However, there is an explanation in Avatar: The Path of Water as to why this is not just Malthusian (those. racist and classist): Again, the problem is corporate greed and unregulated capitalism. You see, during the previously mentioned tolkun hunting scene, we find that the brain mass of tolkuns is being used to completely stop aging in humans.
This means that there is a population of people on Earth who are essentially immortal if they can afford such nonsense. In addition to the fact that workers can apparently scan their memories to be constantly re-cloned as an endless workforce, it seems that the company’s short-sighted, profit-driven, and anti-worker policies are dooming the Earth.
It also goes against the energy balancing that the Na’vi follow on Pandora. It is said that the Goddess Eywa gives energy for life, but it is only borrowed, and that in the end you return the energy after d*ath. However, people on Earth (presumably rich people) are trying to save their life – and their energy – and not give it to nature, causing destruction, chaos and destruction on their planet in the process.
