These figures track newspaper coverage of climate change or global warming in 8 North American newspapers: Washington Post (USA), Wall Street Journal (USA), New York Times (USA), USA Today (USA), Los Angeles Times (USA), Globe & Mail (Canada), Toronto Star (Canada), National Post (Canada). Due to data availability challenges through Nexis Uni for the ‘Globe & Mail’ in Canada in December 2019, we took the average number of stories January-November 2019 in place of December 2019 - June 2020 counts. We are working to update this count as soon as possible with the assistance of CU Libraries.
