Welcome to the very first edition of CCTV! We hope you enjoy reading this monthly review brought to you by Climate Creative.

📰 Recap

The topic for February's Media Club was: Climate Change 101. Here's what we read and watched.

It's Not Climate Change–It's Everything Change by Margaret Atwood

Club analysis: This was a stunning example of a creative multi-media futurism piece that convinces with both logic and emotion. It combines a number of rhetorical methods including statistics, storytelling, art, and written word. Though it was written in 2009 and 2015 everything in it still holds true today. Good read? 🌎 ✅

Yes, it’s all the fault of Big Oil, Facebook and ‘the system’. But let’s talk about you this time by Rutger Bregman

Club analysis: This was an interesting read that led to good discussion in the club. We talked about dieting for the planet, the efficacy and scope of climate shaming, and leading by example. The article led to a riveting discussion on collective action and how that could lead to systemic action, and vice versa. Good read? 🌎 ✅

An Idiot's Guide To Climate Change w/ Rainn Wilson by SoulPancake

Club analysis: Though this video's content was a little too basic for our club, we found the rhetorical devices used to communicate the information useful and fun to analyze. Rainn Wilson was a fun host and as an absolute introductory primer, this might be a useful tool. Good watch? 🌎 🆗
