This project analyzes networks of actors and statements concerning climate change at two levels, the national and the global. Each level has its own two-mode actor-statement network.
The ways that nations frame climate change (from newspaper content analysis) comprises the global field of climate change discourse. Within each nation, different sets of actors support different climate change framings. This project provides the basis for a proposed global real-time national climate change response monitoring and data bank system.
