Risk Journalism—In Contexts of Trans-societal Interdependence

Part of the The Palgrave Macmillan Series in International Political Communication book series (PIPC)


The term ‘climate change’ refers to a variation in the earth’s temperature, and global climate policy aims to negotiate the urgent need to restrict the process of planetary warming. While climate change can be caused by natural processes such as solar radiation, mountain building or continental drifts, the term mostly refers to ‘anthropogenic climate change’, caused by human industrial activities which are drastically changing all types of natural environmental patterns.
