Media matters

Unless you work as a climate scientist, policy wonk or in some other capacity that involves climate change-related work, your main source of information about environmental justice, climate change and energy issues is likely to be the media.

So this section of Energy Royd keeps an eye out for how local, national and international media report on these issues and related news and events. It attempts to identify bias and to analyse rhetorical tricks of the trade that can subtly or unsubtly skew reports.

Energy Royd also aims to support local journalists and photographers who are struggling to provide reliable, comprehensive coverage of all kinds of local news – including local environmental justice, climate change and energy -related issues – in the face of a demoralising succession of cuts to resources and staffing levels by Johnston Press, which owns all the local Calderdale papers.
