Antilla Review of Maxwell Boykoff's Book

Book Review of "Who Speaks for the Climate? Making Sense of Media Reporting on Climate Change," by Maxwell Boykoff, Cambridge University Press -- Science Communication June 2012 34: 429-430 by Liisa Antilla.

Excerpt: "Boykoff’s insights include the reoccurring problems of media “conflation” of the science, economics, and politics of climate and failure to provide context from the large body of scientific understanding. The core strengths of this book are a comprehensive overview of the history of climate journalism; deep analyses of a broad range of media formats—including newspapers, magazines, documentaries, television, radio, and web-based sources; and the unpacking of recent case studies involving climate news “controversies.”
