The Climate Headline Wall
November 22, 2009
I’ve signed up for home delivery of The Age, in an effort to get myself better informed about the political landscape here. I just do better with a hard copy, sad to say.
I’ve noticed right off the bat that climate change–usually emissions policy–is on the front page quite frequently, so for fun I’ve decided to embark on a little installation project. Starting yesterday, I’m going to try to put every front page climate story, and every headline related to climate up on The Climate News Wall. Maybe this will provide an interesting way of looking at how coverage changes over the next year. Of course, this will be biased to coverage by The Age, but hopefully that won’t mar the effort too much. Photo above is The Wall after two days. Not too much to go on so far, but we have one big front page piece on adaptation, surrounded by a ton of political coverage of the ETS scheme.
No doubt this ratio will continue…
