I believe we will, my friend. Though the Earth will not be the same, we will still be around, whether as part of a new Heaven and a new Earth... or just ordinary old Earth that managed to clean up its act and endure that long.
That said, I do agree; Hedorah would be seen quite relevantly. He's probably be focused a lot more on greenhouse gasses (or, if part of the Legendary series, be made of plastic straws), but I don't see this era as less conscious of pollution- just focused on a different kind.
I was just thinking in regards to this film- I've been doing some fan-edits lately, and I almost wonder for this film if it might be worth tackling a project to excise the more bizarre elements. Not to replace the film or the director's vision, but as an experiment- to see if, without the random collages and strange cutaways and dancing skeletons, played more straight as a kaiju movie while skipping the psychedelic bits, it might be more highly regarded by the set of fandom that finds it unenjoyable. To see if those elements of randomness are the barrier to entry, or if its something deeper and more intrinsic.
Who knows; I might tackle this sometime next year...

It’s part of my secret plan to create a fifth column in the US, pre-emoting our glorious conquest and the creation of the Canadian Empire, upon which the sun will consistently set after less than eight hours of daylight.
