Item description for Global Warming, the Ozone Hole, and the Fourth Estate by Dave Howland...

As the chorus demanding substantive worldwide action on global warming grows louder, the stakes are ever higher for human health, the environment, and the economy. Research has established that the news media both reflect and influence public opinion and the policymaking process. An understanding of news coverage of climate change and its sibling, the ozone hole, is invaluable for anyone serious about addressing today's global environmental problems. This interdisciplinary study illuminates the impact of American press coverage on the global warming and stratospheric ozone debates as they unfolded over the past quarter century. Using an original content analysis approach, it takes stock of trends in economic, political, social, scientific, and environmental arguments in hundreds of news reports and examines their role in the very different outcomes of the Kyoto and Montreal protocols. Interviews with key players in the process round out the analysis. This work is relevant to many fields - including communication, journalism, environmental studies, and the policy sciences - and it has important implications for those working on the front lines of today's climate change fight.

Reviews - What do customers think about Global Warming, the Ozone Hole, and the Fourth Estate?

Howland - "Global warming, the Ozone Hole, and the Fourth Estate"  Apr 5, 2008
As a scholar who is interested in the topic but who is not a climate change expert, I think this book makes an outstanding teaching tool for a complex topic. Howland's writing is engaging and clear as he walks the reader through the often unseen role of the media in communicating climate change news to the public. His "landscape maps" - illustrating the dynamic course of rhetoric in the news media over time - are inventive and very useful and will be of interest to anyone working to document complex systems. Moreover, Howland's recommendations for scientists, news media, and policy makers are pragmatic and convincing; teachers in a variety of disciplines are sure to join me in using these ideas as stimuli for classroom discussions.
Useful and educational beyond global warming  Mar 10, 2008
As someone who researches questions in the environmental sciences that often intersect with public debates (e.g. water quality, hurricanes, invasive species), I found the spotlight Howland shines on the interplay between policy makers, scientists, and journalists to be eminently edifying. In particular, the stark difference between the media response to the ozone debate and the global warming debate was an extremely interesting comparison. Howland does a thorough job of documenting that the relative strength of the science and the simple, straight-forward, and deadly consequences of the former provided a very different response by the media. I suspect the well documented and innovative methodology Howland used for investigating these policy debates will be of use in current other scientific policy debates, both past and present. This book should be required reading for any scientists, policy makers, or journalists engaged in vocal environmental debates.
