Global Environmental Change: Climate change in news media across the globe

Climate change poses a challenge to countries across the world, with news media being an important source of information on the issue. To understand how and how much news media cover climate change, a recent study by Valerie Hase, Daniela Mahl, Mike Schäfer and Tobias Keller compares coverage in ten countries from the Global North and the Global South between 2006 and 2018 (N = 71,674).
