Focus: IPCC and media coverage of climate reports

An emerging body of literature is exploring the role of the media in reporting climate change science and the recent IPCC efforts to reach out to policymakers and the public. In this focus, Nature Climate Change presents an Article examining media coverage of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report – in broadcast, print and social media – and a series of opinion pieces looking at the effectiveness of the IPCC communication strategy and the ways experts study media power in the context of climate change.
