Abstract

Scientists and social scientists working on climate change are increasingly concerned about the way in which the issue is reported in the UK national media. Bob Ward argues that Britain’s self-regulating press and weakly monitored broadcast outputs are unable to handle instances of blatant factual misrepresentation. As a result some media outlets can continuously fabricate controversy and denounce constructive environmental policies.
