Episode 1: The Role of the Media in Championing Climate Action ( with journalist Raymond Mujuni)
Episode 1: The Role of the Media in Championing Climate Action ( with journalist Raymond Mujuni)
The media is an important player in cli­mate change com­mu­nic­a­tion –  the general population does not read sci­entific reports, spe­cialist  web­sites and blogs, or the reports of the IPCC. Although in theory, the  ‘facts’ of cli­mate change sci­ence should be reported in a  straight­for­ward way by news­pa­pers and tele­vi­sion net­works,  con­sid­er­able dif­fer­ences exist between the edit­orial lines taken  by dif­ferent media organizations about the reality and ser­i­ous­ness  of cli­mate change. Perhaps unsur­pris­ingly, there is a strong  rela­tion­ship between the polit­ical per­spective of a media  organization and its pos­i­tion on cli­mate change.
