Up and down with climate change | Political Climate


In yet another interesting post, Political Climate have picked up on the UK and world media’s current lack of interest in climate change. They place the “trance” in the context of Anthony Downs’ “issue attention cycle”, in which problems suddenly leap into prominence, remain there for a short time, and then – though they are still largely unresolved – gradually fade from public attention.

I have added a comment, suggesting that the public may now be more interested in related environmental / energy issues and that media coverage of climate change may also be evolving and becoming more specialised.
