And if you talk to British children of the same age today, they will probably make the same kinds of doomsday predictions, but with the ruin coming at the hands of global warming.

^^^Their (actually our) fears were highly rational. It was just by luck that the worse did not happen. There was also an element of not realizing what Sting articulated a few years later:

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us, me and you,
Is if the Russians love their children, too
