This chapter explores some of the ways in which journalists and journalism might respond to the existential problem of climate change. It proposes that the reality of climate change demands that journalists and journalism engage with a radically different time-scale. Journalists have traditionally argues that they, and the media institutions for which they work, play a central role in a flourishing liberal democracy. According to Chris Peters and Marcel Broersma, journalism's claim to act in the public interest: may work well in constitutional documents and philosophical treatises, but it's a fairly unconnected and wishful self-definition in the current multi-media, digital environment. Quoting Entman describes balance as a journalistic norm which aims for neutrality, requiring that reporters present the views of legitimate spokespersons of the conflicting sides in any significant dispute, and provide both sides with roughly equal attention. There is even a transdisciplinary academic journal dedicated to the Anthropocene called The Anthropocene Review.
