Climate Change and the Media: How to Move Beyond Alarmism and Denial.
Jenny Harding and Anne Karpf on Climate Change and the Media:
How to Move Beyond Alarmism and Denial. Are the media contributing to the problem of climate change through apocalyptic stories, or by giving equal airtime to sceptics despite the scientific consensus? Could better reporting help us feel less hopeless and helpless?
Anne Karpf discusses these issues with John Vidal, James Painter and Sally Weintrobe in an event organised by the Centre for Research into Media, Identity and Culture (MiC). Anne Karpf is reader at London Metropolitan University and a freelance journalist; John Vidal is environment editor of The Guardian; James Painter, of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism in Oxford, is author of Climate Change and the Media; and Sally Weintrobe is a psychoanalyst and editor of 'Engaging with Climate Change'.
When: Tuesday 18 November 2014 (6 – 8 pm)
Where: London Metropolitan University, (opp. Holloway tube), 166-220 Holloway Road, London N7 8DB, GC1-08, Tower Building. Followed by a reception.
Entry is free but please book on Eventbrite.
