Antilla Journal Article: Climate of Scepticism

Climate of scepticism: US newspaper coverage of the science of climate change
Global Environmental Change 15(4): 338-352 (December 2005) Abstract:This two-part study integrates a quantitative review of one year of US newspaper coverage of climate science with a qualitative, comparative analysis of media-created themes and frames using a social constructivist approach. In addition to an examination of newspaper articles, this paper includes a reflexive comparison with attendant wire stories and scientific texts. Special attention is given to articles constructed with and framed by rhetoric emphasising uncertainty, controversy, and climate scepticism.
