This observatory analyzes traditional/legacy media representations of climate change. With additional funding, the group of CU-Boulder graduate student and postdoctoral researchers (along with CU-Boulder Professor Max Boykoff and collaborators in Japan, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and Tasmania) endeavor to comprehensively aggregate, monitor, appraise and critically examine media coverage - from newspapers, tv and radio to new, social and digital media - that influence the spectrum of possibility for effective responses to ongoing climate challenges. At present, the MeCCO team monitors coverage monthly in ninety-six selected sources globally. With further funding support, the MECCO team will scale analyses out to provide resonant and useful information for a range of consumers, from local practitioners to elected officials and academic researchers.
