This 4-session IAP series will examine some of the ways in which contemporary media filters matters of climate change.  Starting with selections from William T. Vollmann’s recent award-winning exploration of world energy uses and abuses, Carbon Ideologies, we will review and discuss a selection of film, government reports, photography, graphic fiction and journalism in order to gain a better understanding of how contemporary views of climate change are shaped and received.
