Visual Persistence's insight:

Half for #nature? As daft concept as fencing migratory species? We need integration comms not segregation.

Climate change and "environmental journalism"

Climate change and "environmental journalism" | Envimageine | Scoop.it
Climate change is not an "environmental problem" and it can't be adequately covered by the shrinking ranks of environmental journalists.
Visual Persistence's insight:

Though it is difficult to determine just how much of Sandy's unprecedented destruction can be directly linked to climate change, climate scientists agree that higher tides produced by global warming exacerbated flooding from the storm, and hurricane severity is expected to increase as sea levels continue to rise. Unlike Fox and CNN, several MSNBC segments about the Sandy anniversary mentioned climate change. But overall, just under 8 percent of segments on the top cable news networks mentioned climate change in their anniversary coverage.

Sceptical Climate Part 2: Climate Science in Australian Newspapers

Sceptical Climate Part 2: Climate Science in Australian Newspapers | Envimageine | Scoop.it
This report looks at coverage of climate science in ten Australian newspapers between February and April in 2011 and 2012 and asks: What is the quality and nature of climate science reporting in Australia?
Visual Persistence's insight:

The role of media in a democracy is to truthfully report contemporary events and issues to the public. This includes scientific evidence about the crucial issue of climate change. If people are confused or ignorant about potential threats, they cannot be expected to support action to confront them. This report looks at coverage of climate science in ten Australian newspapers between February and April in 2011 and 2012 and asks: What is the quality and nature of climate science reporting in Australia? What role are these publications playing in informing the public about climate science?
