PERTH: UWA SCIENCE COMMUNICATION SEMINAR SERIES- 25th September 2009

Next week Mark Cornish will be presenting a talk based on his honours  
research into Australian mass media and its reporting on climate change.

The mass media, a reservoir of information which can influence public  
opinion, has the potential to cause public confusion or clarify  
understanding regarding the causes and effects of global climate change.

Mark Cornish, a science communication honours student at UWA will present
his findings from his research project which focused on Australian  
mass media's
coverage of the Rudd government's proposed carbon emissions trading  
scheme, a major climate change policy. First, Mark will discuss some  
history and politicisation of 'climate change', and then he will share  
his insights and honours findings.

UWA SCIENCE COMMUNICATION SEMINAR SERIES- 25th September 2009

Next week we have Mark Cornish who will be presenting a talk based on his
honours research into the mass media and its reporting on climate change.

The mass media, a reservoir of information which can influence public
opinion, is a crucial line of inquiry to understand public confusion
regarding the causes and effects of global climate change.

Mark Cornish, a science communication honours student at UWA will present
his findings from his research project which analysed the mass media's
coverage of a major climate change policy. First, Mark will discuss some
history and politicisation of 'climate change', and then he will proceed to
share his insights and honours findings.
