Ramez Abuhasirah, Rasha Salameh


This article aimed to identify the coverage of digital Jordanian daily newspapers of climate change issues and the framing used in published Journalism materials. A media survey methodology has been adopted to achieve the article's aim, using content analysis of 335 Journalism articles published on the websites Al-Ghad, Addustour, and Al-Rai. The results showed that the three digital Jordanian daily newspapers were interested in covering the issue of climate change and relied mainly on "reports" to provide information about the issue. Furthermore, it relied on persuasive methods to convince the reader of climate change and its adverse societal effects and raise environmental awareness to ensure sustainable development. The results also revealed that digital Jordanian daily newspapers framed the issue of climate change within the framing of the strategy, responsibility, and human interests. Finally, the results concluded that the digital Jordanian daily newspapers should avoid framing climate change within an episodic frame, as this process shapes and changes the public's interpretations and priorities towards climate issues.
