1- Does the media influence our perception of climate change in a negative way?
2- Why does everybody seem resigned to the prospect of climate change disasters?
3- Is global warming a turning point in our history?
Climate change is often described as a series of unexpected events leading to disaster. Nicholas Mirzoeff is one of our experts on disasters. He is currently working on a project on the visual culture of climate change in conjunction with the not-for-profit organisation Islands First.
