This writing positions the accompanying volume within a realm of complications of climate change journalism that operates amid recognized pressures of journalistic practice through notions of political economy, the social and cultural influences shaping news explanations, and critical interpretations of the current global crisis of a warming planet. Specifically, this volume is interested in how journalism may function among “synergistic effects” of climate change, the compounded impact of severe weather, social and political responses to changing global warming, and the often-unfortunate results and impacts on our environments as global communities attempt to address climate events already challenging for journalists to cover and the social and cultural outcomes associated with them.
