Thanks for giving it a read! I never thought about it before, but your point about a small group of superheroes doing the fighting for us is dead on. In a sense, it can easily become a non-conscious script supporting individuals to "leave climate change to the superheroes".

As for my "next" articles I've actually been fairly slow at new content as of late haha, but If you want to keep the conversation going, I have a couple of other film-related posts you might find interesting. (No pressure though.)

One on 'Turning up the Heat' as a story device for addressing climate change (heavily leaning into Spike Lee's 'Do the Right Thing'): https://medium.com/climate-conscious/turning-up-the-heat-a-story-device-for-addressing-climate-change-998522d0350e

The other more or less keeping up the conversation on this last post by diving into the 2017 films 'Downsizing' and 'First Reformed': https://medium.com/climate-conscious/how-downsizing-and-first-reformed-take-on-climate-change-a5da9617de0d

In the meantime, do you have any posts I should check out? Film? Climate Change? Something totally random? You make a lot of great observations and I'd love to hear more.
