Abstract [en]

According to World Resources Institute, China burns as much coal as the whole world combined. This thesis aims to gain an insight into what the Chinese government thinks about climate change by examining 37 articles published by the state owned newspaper People’s Daily 30-05-2017 – 19-06-2017. This will be done in connection to the Paris agreement (CoP21), USA’s withdrawal from the agreement and by applying Good’s (2008), Semetko and Valkenburg’s (2000) news frames. In terms of Goods (2008) news frames, this research compares its results to another research done 25-11-2015 – 15-12-2015, to determine whether the reports have changed overtime. In addition, this study also examines how developing countries are portrayed in the newspaper with regard to climate change and with the help of Semetko and Valkenburg’s news frames.

Both studies have shown that People's Daily mostly report about climate change in an economic and political context with a slight change in the economic frame that has seen an increase during the time period of this study. The newspaper also prefers to report about the solutions to counter climate change rather than causes. The articles praise China for its involvement in helping developing countries, and the developed countries are reported to be responsible for helping them (developing countries) fight climate change.
