The Media climate
The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has a new image today – they write about the treat from the climate changes. The idea is to each and everybody a chance to undertake a commitment about how to decrease ones emission of greenhouse gases. You can promise to lower the temperature inside your home, drive less car, take the train instead of the airplane when possible, use the public transport instead of the car, use the bike for more journeys etc. If you can manage the Swedish language, have a look in the link.

Today the Swedish Meteorology and Hydrology Institute, SMHI, release figures that show, that the climate in Sweden has become almost one degree warmer the latest 15 years. The latest 15 years are compared with statistics from the years 1961-1990.
The Swedish media cover more and more news about the climate, Swedish TV, radio and the newspapers all have news about the climate changes. Most of the articles are more of the reporting kind. In the editorials and in letters to the editor you can find one or other doubter of the climate changes of course.
