Global warming

  1. 1. Googling the global warming:content-analyses of search results in google, google scholar and google news
  2. 2. Googling the global warming• Question: – How the discourse is taking shape in the digital realm? – What you get when you google vs using scholar.google.com?• NB: we don’t know how Google chooses what it thinks to be relevant for us, but the results are likely to be different for everyone, so this is only my personal variant of “digital realm”.
  3. 3. Googling the global warming• Search options analyzed – Google (general) – Google News – Google Scholar• First 10 most relevant search results are taken
  4. 4. Googling the global warming• They are evaluated according to the following parameters: – Hypothesis: global warming is happening (supports / rejects) – Hypothesis: humans are causing global warming (supports / rejects)• Scores: – 1 point for supporting – Minus 1 point for rejecting – 0 if no definite opinion is stated or topic is not addressed – 0,5 / -0,5 if no definite opinion is stated, but some arguments tend towards one or another point of view
  5. 5. Googling the global warming: results• Mostly controversy is in the news• “General” google’s level of “belief” in global warming is lower, but not drastically, then google scholar’s
