Hawt or Not[edit]

Where is the futurama reference "none like it hot"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 61.69.53.133 (talk) 05:36, 24 October 2007 (UTC)


Suggestions for improving article[edit]

Hey, great idea for an article! This could be a great resource for people looking for novels and movies that feature global warming. Unfortunately, it's poorly organized. So, here's what I suggest:

1) Create categories like feature films, novels, short stories, comics, and television.

2) Under each category, list each entry either alphabetically or chronologically. I think alphabetic would be the easiest to do. However, chronologic would be good as it would kind of show the evolution of climate change in pop culture, and would be more helpful to people looking for more recent references.

3) Begin we each entry with its title, followed by a brief description or plot summary.

4) To keep the article truly focused on pop culture, we should not include documentaries or non-fiction writings, as these things don't quite fit the definition.

If nobody has any objections, I'll start working on the re-org.--CurtisSwain (talk) 06:30, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Street art?[edit]

Should this article include street art also? There's no category for it as yet. I'm thinking specifically of this recent piece of work by graffiti artist Banksy which I think would count as 'popular culture'? : "Banksy marked the end of the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference by painting 4 murals on global warming. One included "I don't believe in global warming" which was submerged in water."[1] ~Susan 82.45.201.15 (talk) 00:58, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Article probation[edit]

Please note that, by a decision of the Wikipedia community, this article and others relating to climate change (broadly construed) has been placed under article probation. Editors making disruptive edits may be blocked temporarily from editing the encyclopedia, or subject to other administrative remedies, according to standards that may be higher than elsewhere on Wikipedia. Please see Wikipedia:General sanctions/Climate change probation for full information and to review the decision. -- ChrisO (talk) 13:39, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Would the Colin Beavan film No Impact Man be included or not since it is a documentary?[edit]

Would the Colin Beavan film No Impact Man be included or not since it is a documentary? 99.37.85.53 (talk) 16:56, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Is it it "popular"? (no opinion). Does it have to do with "climate change"? (probably not). — Arthur Rubin (talk) 16:58, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
"Yes" to both of Arthur's questions, but, no it should not be included. Although climate change is addressed and the family does reduce their carbon footprint, it's more about our overall impact on the planet, greenhouse gases being just one. And we're not including documentaries here, so, no. Good film though.--CurtisSwain (talk) 21:31, 21 March 2010 (UTC)

Resource, PRC[edit]

Beijing Gallery Puts a Focus on Global Warming by Edward Wong, published September 28, 2011 in The New York Times. 97.87.29.188 (talk) 22:13, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed move of five items from another article[edit]

There are five items in Climate change in literature which are not in Climate change in popular culture: The Drowned World, Mother of Storms, The Carbon Diaries: 2015 (sic), Far North, The Contingency Plan. I propose to add them to Climate change in popular culture, then do a blank-and-redirect on Climate change in literature. Reasoning: readers can find all climate-change-in-literature items in one place. But if there are definite objections on the talk page of either article, I won't bother. Peter Gulutzan (talk) 23:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

I have now added the items. Peter Gulutzan (talk) 23:41, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Non-fiction books[edit]

I have effectively reverted 108.73.113.4's addition of several non-fiction books to the Literature section. I objected on May 5 that these books are not Literature, in Talk:Climate_change_in_literature, and saw no reply. They also are not "popular" or "cultural", as far as I can tell. I did not remove the praise of Al Gore. And if somebody has some good criteria for inclusion that wouldn't include (say) the first IPCC report, perhaps more can fit. Peter Gulutzan (talk) 01:20, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to have made your work more difficult by restoring the edits by a blocked editor. However, whatever the definition of "literature", some of them do qualify as "popular culture". — Arthur Rubin (talk) 02:42, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
The current Amazon rank of one of Mr/Ms Blocked Anonymous's "popular culture" books, Greenhouse solutions with sustainable energy, is: 3,255,721. I don't believe his/her selection represents popular impact. It's more objective or up-to-date to say "see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Climate_change_books".
