Abstract:

The media attention for climate change in developing countries is crucial for understanding the discourses that exist in vulnerable zones. This study analyzes the manner in which Latin American and Spanish online media presented news on climate change during the Conferences of the Parties (United Nations Climate Change Conferences) in Cancun (2010) and Durban (2011). This study involved a content analysis of 889 news items from 97 online media outlets. Consistent with previous research, the findings show that media attention decreased in 2011, the principal sources for these news items are politicians and almost half of the news came from news agencies. When politicians, scientists, victims or activists appear, there is a trend for the news item to have a specific position (conformity/confrontation). However, in those articles in which witnesses are included, the trend is the opposite. The study concluded that the media coverage of climate change does not respond to local needs and that further qualitative analysis is required.
