In class we went over several videos with various points of persuasion and how company’s can use adds to help portray a product and how it would deliberately show a certain life style association. For this blog I choose to highlight an add made by 350.gov for a petition they ran to have hurricanes named after politicians that have apposed accepting climate change as an actual scientifically proven phenomenon and are so called “climate deniers”.
This video just like the ones watched in class help frame what will happen in the future especially as climate change intensifies and people oppose the collaboration of stopping this effect. This video is the best of both worlds, not only does it raise awareness for the disastrous effects of climate change to specifically our country but it also highlights politicians that do not accept scientific research ( not including the Hartland institute publishing’s) backing the creation of this phenomenon and linking it to our own actions. Although the petition was started long ago you can still sign up on the second link attached below.
Regarding climate change, since the start of the industrial revolution(1750) we have been able to see a huge spike in carbon dioxide molecules in our atmosphere, Specifically the range from around 200 parts per million to roughly 400 parts per million. This is problematic, even though for our planet to function properly we do need carbon dioxide for several systems the amount we have accumulated is overloading and to excess. Thus it is very important we push our government and political figures to properly diver us from further storms and if they do not agree in the mean time get peoples attention on this matter by as mentioned using politicians names to be used to track hurricanes.
