Growth of research output and media production relating to climate change (CC). a Number P(t) of CC publication indexed by Web of Science by year t, with 93% published after 2000. The approximate linearity on linear-log axes indicates exponential growth with notable upticks in the late 1980s and late 2000s. b The prominence of three CC-related terms, measured by the number of sentences (per week) across all media articles indexed by Media Cloud. (c) Total number of media articles indexed by Media Cloud (per month, across all media sources). Exponential smoothing is used in b and c to tame the noise at the week and month resolution
