Going beyond media studies as well as descriptive or highly scientific accounts of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic, Media and the Politics of Arctic Climate Change explores how both historical and contemporary mediations, scientific narratives and satellite technology simultaneously capture and reconstruct this new reality of the Anthropocene, where human activities shape the planet.
By highlighting the linkages between science, media, environmental change and geopolitics, the informed contributors to Media and the Politics of Arctic Climate Change invite the reader to reflect on what is local and what is global in today's connected mediatized world.

In an era of rapid environmental change, the Arctic provides a complex and challenging case of geopolitical interplay. Based on analyses of how actors from within and outside the Arctic region assert their interests and how such discourses travel in the media, this book scrutinizes the social and material contexts within which new imaginaries, spatial constructs and scalar preferences emerge.
It places ground-breaking attention to shifting media landscapes as a critical component of the social, environmental and technological change. It also reflects on the fundamental dilemmas inherent in democratic decision making at a time when an urgent need for addressing climate change is challenged by conflicting interests and growing geopolitical tensions.aspenmarketresearch.com/5189.php
