The drought of 2018: A national crisis or a climate debate? : A quantitative content analysis of local and national reporting on the summer drought of 2018. (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay’s purpose is to investigate how the swedish media portrayed the swedish summer drought of 2018. With a quantitative content analysis focusing on two newspapers, one regional and one national, this essay answers how the drought of 2018 was portrayed from a local and national perspective, from a framing and environmental theoretical perspective. But also to what extent the newspapers connected the drought and global climate change and what voices that were emphasized in the texts concerning the drought of 2018.

 

This study shows that the swedish drought 2018 was portrayed with “straight” news reporting in both regional and local newspapers. The articles did rarely contain any sort of conflict and the actors in the articles were dominated by authorities and businessmen. The head consequence of the drought in both of the newspapers was the environment. Although, it was rarely connected with climate changes. In 90 percent of the local press-articles the climate change was not mentioned. Those times when the drought was connected with climate change, in both newspapers, it was in debate articles, often written by a journalist.
