The ongoing climate emergency has also been addressed by musicians. Climate change has become a prominent theme in the work of Bon Iver, The 1975, Lil Dicky, Mitski, and Grimes. In September 2019, chart topping artist Billie Eilish released the music video for the environmentally-minded song, “All the Good Girls Go To Hell.” The video features a winged Eilish stumbling out of an oil spill while the surrounding landscape is engulfed in flames. In announcing the video, Eilish framed such apocalyptic imagery as a warning and call to action, urging her millions of social media followers to join in the global climate strikes first initiated by Thunberg.

Throughout this lesson, students will conduct a simple experiment to examine how greenhouse gases trap heat. They also discuss the ways the Billie Eilish song and music video “All Good Girls Go to Hell” addresses environmental concerns, and evaluate various possible climate pathways through a creative writing exercise. Finally, they reflect on ways they might be able to contribute to the fight for a healthy climate and environment by drafting a climate action plan.
