This two-part study integrates a quantitative review of one year of US newspaper coverage of climate science with a qualitative, comparative analysis of media-created themes and frames using a social constructivist approach. In addition to an examination of newspaper articles, this paper includes a reflexive comparison with attendant wire stories and scientific texts. Special attention is given to articles constructed with and framed by rhetoric emphasising uncertainty, controversy, and climate scepticism.

The lovely Miss PNG, Antonnia Singut is multi-talented and articulate.And she has pedigree.
Her late grandfather was well known Australian journalist, Ian Boden who spent 40 years working in Papua New Guinea, first as the ABC’s radio announcer in Rabaul and later as press secretary to former Prime Minister Sir Rabbie Namaliu and executive editor of ‘The National’ newspaper.
I was inspired by my late grandfather," Miss Singut said. "I was raised by my grandparents."
"My grandfather had a very influential role in my life and he instilled in me a love for the English language."
Miss Singut, who completes her reign as Miss PNG in August, is in Townsville working at the trade expo attached to the Australia Papua New Guinea Business Forum being held at Jupiters Townsville.
She is one of the most well-known faces of PNG, being a newsreader on the nightly ‘National Em Television’news.
She has a diploma in information technology and is in the final year of a degree at the University of Papua New Guinea,co majoring in journalism and environmental science.
She also works part time for life insurer Kwila Insurance.
As Miss PNG, Antonnia has enjoyed trips to Geneva and Solferino in Italy, the birthplace of the pageants charity organisation the Red Cross.As a contestant she raised almost 30,000 Kina(about $12,000) for the Red Cross in sausage sizzles and carwashes.
Miss Singut said PNG was a beautiful place and not as bad a people perceive it to be."Port Moresby has its share of socio-economic issues but that’s all part of the urban transformation and rural urban drift" She said.
The huge Exxon-led $16 billion PNG LNG project, now getting underway outside Port Moresby would build the country’s capacity and offer jobs to school leavers.
She plans to complete her degree and work in media and environmental science, perhaps as a geographic information systems analyst.
environmental newspaper articles
Media discourses about drought impacts on lakes and reservoirs in Arizona and New Mexico between 2002 and 2004 are compared to show how discursive contexts shape the framing of drought in temporal and spatial scales. Discursive contexts in the two states are shaped by their cultural and political histories and the differential development of water delivery infrastructures. Quantitative mapping of keywords in the states’ main newspapers shows how New Mexico experienced more conflict and Arizona more surprise about the drought. Qualitative case studies link these patterns to variation in framing between the states. In particular, the shorter temporal scale in New Mexico is linked to a greater sense of emergency, while the longer temporal scale in Arizona reflects the buffering of urban populations from drought through water delivery infrastructure. The finer spatial scale in Arizona, focusing on urban concerns, reflects an established infrastructure of reservoirs while the broader spatial scale in New Mexico, incorporating both rural and urban concerns, reflects a less developed physical infrastructure and greater prevalence of water rights conflicts. This study illustrates the usefulness of a multifaceted approach to the study of media discourse.
