Our group used a skit to demonstrate ideas about how we, as a society, can change the environment. We collaborated on two ideas, one of which you saw in class. Here is a script of our second skit.
I (Susan) am the leader of a protest against deforrestation. Behind me are several of our classmates, representing other protesters from the same organization. Sara is a woman who is chopping down trees on her property. Rochelle is Mother Nature, who is ambling about coughing because Mother nature is sick.
Susan: Hello ma'am. We are from the Americans for the Preservation of Forrests Association. We would like to protest your chopping down of this forrest.
Sara(in a Southern accent): This is my property I can do whatever I want to it!
Susan: But you see, you are affecting more people than just yourself by destroying this tree.
Sara: No one lives within a mile of me! I am affecting no one.
Susan: Ah, but you see, by killing more things than you need to, you are making Mother Nature sick (gestures to Rochelle). Mother Nature is already sick as it is, but if you continue to chop down trees you will make her even more sick. If she gets too sick, then she will destroy us all with extreme weather.
Sara: Ah, piss off. I'm going inside my house and getting nice and warm. (Sara goes into her house, the group of protestors goes away dejectedly). Oh, it's so nice in this house!
Rochelle: (Running across the stage waving her arms) Mudslide!!!
Susan: (To Sara) I warned you!
So, this skit provides a contrast to the skit about the government. While in the government skit humanity changed the environment, it seemed a little totalitarian. In this one, no one is forcing us to change and there were no fines, but because no one was forcing us to change people decided not to change.
