- Watch the following commercial for the Nissan Leaf, an electric car. I have also included the actual link to Youtube below if you prefer to access the commercial that way. It is only 1 mintue long. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EueGY2zjGBw.
- Provide short answer responses to the following thought questions (a paragraph or two should suffice):
Besides buying this car, what message is the car company conveying? Clearly they are trying to strike an emotional nerve, so how does this commercial make you feel? Note how ‘out of place’ the polar bear looks in the varying ecosystems. The polar bear was very specifically chosen for this message – why? Do you feel Nissan effectively reaches their target audience, theeducated consumer? Why or why not?
- Attached is a one-page article published in Science Magazine. Basically they reviewed published literature and found that there is overwhelming consensus that 1) climate change is real and that 2) human activity is mainly responsible. Please write a paragraph on why you think there is so much confusion in the media and among the masses if this is the case within the scientific community?
