New publication "The Media Climate", edited by Irene Neverla & Mike S. Schäfer

Book description:  For many people media representations are the central source of information on global climate change. Mass media illustrate the relevance of the topic, break down global climate change to regional contexts and show short-term consequences of long-term change. Therefore, scientists, politicians, NGOs and companies seek gaining voice in mass media. Consequently, an increasing number of studies focuses on media constructions of climate change, its drivers and impacts. This volume examines the existing literature, presents the current knowledge and identifies research perspectives.
