Media coverage of climate science in Australian newspapers: A case study of the State of the Climate reports
This report examines the media coverage around the release of the past five State of the Climate reports. Specifically, it examines the framing and extent to which climate climate science is discussed in the Australia media.
Using a combination of both open and axiomatic coding, and critical discourse analysis, the report examined all of the Australian newspaper coverage of the 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 reports to determine:
- how accurately the climate science was represented
- how prevalent particular narratives were
- whether reporting was politicised
