Climate change: why The Guardian is putting threat to Earth front and centre

1
Journalism tends to be a rear-view mirror. We prefer to deal with what has happened, not
what lies ahead. We favour what is exceptional and in full view over what is ordinary and
hidden.
Famously, as a tribe, we are more interested in the man who bites a dog than the other
5
way round. But even when a dog does plant its teeth in a man, there is at least something
new to report, even if it is not very remarkable or important.
There may be other extraordinary and significant things happening - but they may be oc-
curring too slowly or invisibly for the impatient tick-tock of the newsroom ot to snatch
the attention of a harassed reader on the way to work.
10
What is even more complex: there may be things that have yet to happen - stuff that can-
not even be described as news on the grounds that news is stuff that has already hap-
pened. If it is not yet news - if it is in the realm of prediction, speculation and uncertainty
- it is difficult for a news editor to cope with. […]
For these, and other reasons changes to the Earth's climate rarely make it to the top of the
15
news list. The changes may be happening too fast for human comfort, but they happen
too slowly for the newsmakers - and, to be fair, for most readers.
These events that have yet to materialise may dwarf anything journalists have had to cov-
er over the past troubled century. There may be untold catastrophes, famines, floods,
droughts, wars, migrations and sufferings just around the corner. But that is futurology,
20
not news, so it is not going to force itself on any front page any time soon.
Even when the overwhelming majority of scientists wave a big red flag in the air, they
tend to be ignored. Is this new warning too similar to the last? Is it all too frightening to
contemplate? Is a collective shrug of fatalism the only rational response?
The climate threat features very prominently on the home page of The Guardian on Fri-
25
day even though nothing exceptional happened on this day. It will be there again next
week and the week after. Yow will, I hope, be reading a lot about our climate over the
coming weeks.
One reason for this is personal. This summer I am stepping down after 20 years of editing
The Guardian. Over Christmas I tried to anticipate whether I would have any regrets
30
once I no longer had the leadership of this extraordinary agent of reporting, argument, in-
vestigation, questioning and advocacy.
Very few regrets, I thought, except this one: that we had not done justice to this huge,
overshadowing, overwhelming issue of how climate change will probably, within the
lifetime of our children, cause untold havoc and stress to our species.
35
So, in the time left to me as editor, I thought i would try to harness The Guardian's best
resources to describe what is happening and what - if we do nothing - is almost certain
to occur, a future that one distinguished scientist has termed as "incompatible with any
reasonable characterisation of an organised, equitable and civilised global community".
It is not that The Guardian has not ploughed considerable time, effort, knowledge, talent
40
and money into reporting this story over many years. Four million unique visitors a
month now come to The Guardian for our environmental coverage - provided, at its
peak, by a team including seven environmental correspondents and editors as well a
team of 28 external specialists.
They, along with our science team, have done a wonderful job of writing about the changes
45
to our atmosphere, oceans, ice caps, forests, food, coral reefs and species.
For the purpose of our coming coverage, we will assume that the scientific consensus
about man-made climate change and its likely effects is overwhelming. We will leave the
sceptics and deniers to waste their time challenging the science. The mainstream argu-
ment has moved on to the politics and economics.
50
The coming debate is about two things: what governments can do to attempt to regulate,
or otherwise stave off, the now predictably terrifying consequences of global warming
beyond 2 °C by the end of the century. And how we can prevent the states and corpora-
tions which own the planet's remaining reserves of coal, gas and oil from ever being al-
lowed to dig most of it up. We need to keep them in the ground. […]
55
This was the starting point for the group of journalists who met early in January to start
considering how we would cover the issue. […]
In addition to words, images and films, we will be podcasting the series as we go along,
to give some insight and transparency about our reporting and how we are framing and
developing it.
60
We begin on Friday and on Monday with two extracts from the introduction to Naomi
Klein's recent book, This Changes Everything. This has been chosen because it combines
sweep$^1$, science, politics, economics, urgency and humanity. Antony Gormley, who has
taken a deep interest in the climate threat, has contributed two artworks from his collec-
tion that have been exhibited before - the first of many artists with whom we hope to
65
collaborate over coming weeks.
Where does this leave you? I hope not feeling impotent and fearful. […]
Please read what we write. Real change can only follow from citizens informing them-
selves and applying pressure. […]

The outgoing Editor-in-chief of the english newspaper The Guardian is putting threat to Earth front and center. With front and center he means the most read sections of the papers. Rusbridger deems climate change as such an important topic that he wants to highlight it this way.
Einleitung
Titelseite und Mittelteil
The text campaign will be sidelined by podcasts, „images and films“(Text, line 57) in order to cover the topic through every possible channel. Even though the project was revealed in the given article in March 2015, preparations for the project had already begun „in January“ (Text, line 55). This step underlines how important the project was to Alan Rusbridger.
Beschreibung
Lange Vorbereitung
The project will work through the publication of articles and additionaly through the publication of visual arts. Rusbridger announced that a famous artist „who has taken a deep interest in the climate threat, has contributed two artworks“(Text, line 62 f.). Moreover they will include excerpts out of books on climate change. This way, no matter how the interests of a reader are one of the mediums will catch his attention.
Multiple Medien
Articles and other kinds of art will deal with two main aspects of climate change. First of all with informations about how governments can try to „stave off, the now predictably terrifying consequences of global warming beyond 2°C by the end of the century“(Text, line 51 f.).
Verhindern von 2°C Erderwärmung
Aspect number two is making people aware of the dangers a continous consumption and exploiting of fossil fuels poses. By not producing any more „coal, gas and oil“ (Text, line 53) less CO2 will be emited and global warming decelerated.
Motive
Politischen Druck aufbauen
Citizens are supposed to then lobby their local politicians to endorse these measures. Therefore political pressure is the aim of the project. Which is very difficult to achieve due to the nature of the problem. Climate change is a steady but slow threat to humanity. Measurable outcomes of policies are only available after decades. In political terms a decade is beyond reach. Politicians are interested in immediate results which they can present to their electorate.
Klimawandel zu langsam um attraktiv für Politiker zu sein
Journalists and media representatives have the same deal with climate change. It is happening to slow to be breaking news and hence it is happening „invisibly for the impatient tick-tock of the newsroom“(Text, line 8). Pictures of a receding glazier always make headlines, but afterwards they will be bared from coverage for another decade. That's why the Guardian is featuring climate threat very prominently […] even though nothing […] happened“ (Text, line 24 f.). At the same time The Guardian is trying to present with this campaign how exceptional their news coverage is. Refering to their publication Rusbriger uses the phrase „extraordinary agent of reporting, argument, investigation, questioning and advocacy“(Text, line 30 f.).This kind of self-adulation is also used to charme the readers and to make them feel good about themselves.
Erzeugen von Aufmerksamkeit
Selbstbeweihräucherung und schmeicheln der eigenen Leserschaft
As mentioned early in the text Alan Rusbridger is going to step down from his position as Editor-in-chief. Making the three weeks of increased coverage of climate threat to a personal matter. Asking himself if „we had […] done justice to this huge, overshadowing, overwhelming issue“ (Text, line 32 f.)?
Persönliches Anliegen des Chefredakteurs
The personal agenda of Rusbridger is incorporating a threat scenario for our species. He is writing about „how climate change will probably, withing the lifetime of our children, cause untoold havoc and stress“ (Text, line 33 f.). With the mentioning of children he clearly is trying to appeal to emotions of the reader.
Beeinflussung des Lesers
emotional
He adds to the image of pending destruction when he starts to name what kind of eco systems are about to change. Naming „atmosphere, oceans, ice caps, forests, food, coral reefs and species“ (Text, line 45).
Aufzählung gefährdeter Systeme
A couple lines down he appeals to common sense in order to convince his readers of the urgency to demand action. Citing „ that the scientific consensus about man-made climate change and its likely effects is overwhelming“ (Text, line 46 f.). Backed by the scientific community he wants people to recognize the threat.
Gesunder Menschenverstand
To even get those on board who doubt the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory the author is putting forward that a „team including seven environmental correspondents and editors as well as a team of 28 external specialists“ (Text, line 42 f.) are working on The Guardians environmental coverage. The enumeration is increasing their credibility and on account of this making the issue of climate change more important.

To my dear schoolmates,
your student council is planning to have one Digital Detox Day per month. On this day, you would commit to leave your cellphone off for an entire day. This would take place at school and at home. Can you imagine doing this?
Einleitung
inklusive Erklärung des Vorhabens
Many big companies have guidelines for their workers which ask them to not check their e-mail after work in order to relax better. Our plan for a Digital Detox Day is supposed to have similiar effects.
Vergleich Arbeitswelt
If you leave your cellphone off for a day you will be amazed how much more you will actually talk. In order to ask people something you would have to walk up to them and get your desired information face to face. Which in return means meeting more people and maybe even finding out more about them and about how they feel than if you just texted them.
Mehr persönliche Kontakte
intensivere Kontakte
Your cell phone provides you every day with endless information and unlimited music or entertainment. If you do not have access to this wealth of data, you will learn that this is something very special. Not taking things for granted is great to appreciate little things more in life.
Steigerung der Wertschätzung des Internets
As soon as you shut down your mobile, you will be amazed about how much better your attention will be. Aren't you sick of people talking to you while having still one earphone in? Aren't you tired of people looking at their screen while you tell them something? Aren't you distracted while driving when you hear that you received a text?
Gesteigerte Aufmerksamkeit
Another effect you will notice is that your self confidence will grow. Don't we all find ourself texting people with questions about small matters: Should I eat this or that? What do you think about this shirt? What do you say about this picture of me?
If you stop doing this, cause you can't, you will decide upon this by yourself and be more confident with your decisions.
Höheres Selbstbewusstsein
My last and final argument is about your increased memory. If you just can't look up when your bus is leaving or screen shoting the timetable you will have to remember it. There are so many things we stop to remember and choose to look up instead. That's why I say: Train your brain and detox for a while!
Steigerung Erinnerungsvermögen
Appell
It would be great if all of you would support the student council's proposal for a Digital Detox Day. We would all talk more with each other, be more attentive, more self-confident and able to remember when the bus is leaving.
Doesn't that sound great? Yours,
Andy

To whom it may concern,
is often written at the beginning of e-mails. We are assembled here because we all are concerned about animal rights. But this is not enough! Mankind needs to pick up its respinsibility for animal welfare.
Einleitung
First of all we need to make people understand that the mantra of increased productivity is killing animals. Always more and always cheaper will only lead to animals suffering always.
Aspekt 1
Mantra der steigenden Produktivität
To satisfy the growing hunger for animal meat only certain breeds are kept by farmers. Breeds that produce the most meat. We need to leave this path, the species richness of our planet is already decreasing to fast.

Artenvielfalt
If we would return to a decentralized farm system we could grown genuine races and old breeds to counteract. By doing this the variety of animal products would increase and the animals could be kept in the ideal surrounding.
An Umgebung angepasste Rassen
Taking care of animals means taking care of our environment at the same time. Keeping animals in a suitable place reduces the effects they have on the environment.
Aspekt 2
Umwelt
It needs to stop that forest areas are being cut down to have a meadow where animals can graze. Huge parts of the Amazon rainforest were deforested to keep cattle. I rather have a jaguar living in the djungle than a cow!
Rodungen für Weideflächen
In areas where farmers practice intensive animal farming lots of animal waste is created. So much waste is created that the farmers can not even use it as fertilizer on their fields. It would polute the ground water too much. They are forced to ship it to other parts of the country to get rid of it. The government has to set a limit for how many animals are allowed to be kept in a certain area
Belastung Grundwasser
Regelung Regierung
The government needs to act because human health and animal health are so closely connected. Eating meat that was produced under conditions that are unhealthy for animals is unhealthy for humans.
Aspekt 3
Ein System
Intensive animal farming causes harm to our ground water and first and foremost to the animals themselves. They are exposed to tons of stress having to live in crowded cages or pens.
Massentierhaltung ungesund
In order to keep the animals from dying in the described conditions they are drugged. This system of keeping animals in such environments needs to change now. Eating a steak that was produced in such a fashion packs nearly as much antibiotics as a pill from the pharmacy.
Verwendung von Antibiotika
I only named three aspects where we need to focus more on animal welfare in my speech. There are still numerous topics to talk about during our conference. We need to send out clear demands to our politicians so we will get the changes we need that mankind and animals are both well off.
Thanks for your attention!

After the American War of Independence the United States needed to find a way to govern their territory and its people. The signature of the Constitution in 1787 created the desired political framework. With its system of checks and balances it was a progressive and modern document, but it lacked articles about personal freedoms. This is why Congress proposed the "Bill of Rights" to the state legislatures
Einleitung
Bill of Rights als Quelle
The Bill of Rights was brought up in Congress because the people were scared that the new government could turn into a tyranny. In their heads were still the memories of King Georges oppression. To prevent this from happening again they demanded the acknowledgement of their civil rights.
Historischer Kontext
The ten articles include the right to have a fair trail, the freedom of speech and freedom of religion and are still in act today. The second article is even a topic in 2016's presidential election. It states the "right to bear arms" and whenever a politician in the USA wants to regulate the sale of arms there is a huge outcry by the public.
Aktueller Bezug
Waffenrecht
For the American people the Bill of Rights is a document with a status similar to the Declaration of Independence. It is deeply ingrained in the American identity to refer to these documents and to be proud of the long-standing democratic tradition.
Stolz auf Dokument
As the Bill of Rights still stands just as it was ratified back in 1791 expresses its relevance. It is a practised and cherished piece of American history.
Relevanz
It is one of the most valuable achievements of the Founding Era. Influenced by the Age of Enlightenment the Bill of Rights is a chief exponent of this kind of philosophy. Defining basic human rights and entrusting a governing body with the duty to uphold these.
Geist der Aufklärung
This underlines why the Bill of Rights is such an important document. It represents a certain era of human thought, embodies personal freedoms and lays at the core of the American democratic tradition.
