Abstract [en]

This paper aims to study Swedish newspapers and their reporting on climate change and the climate threat in regard to different discourses. The two discourses, one regarding rhetoric controlled by a mindset of chatastrophy and the other concerning responsibility were discussed in relation to the content of the Paris agreement. The agreement also functioned as the chosen time period for the essay. This means articles from 2015 and forward were analyzed and the discussed. The methods used for the study were critical discourse analysis which was created by Norman Fairclough in combination with theories regarding policymaking and represented problems, a theory and method created by Carol Lee Bacchi. The essay’s results focused on the two discourses and the content of the Paris agreement, in these the discourses were identified and analysed. The conclusions showed that the rhetoric surrounding climate change was influenced by a doomsday an chatastrophic influenced rhetoric that affected the articles and opinions. Another conclusion showed that in relation to the Paris agreement the question of responsibility was placed on the more developed countries in the agreement but in the media the responsibility was more abstract and concerned a more unclear version of humanity. Therefore the blame for climate change is unclear and uncertain.
