This essay appears within the European Environment Agency's Late Lessons From Early Warnings: Science, Precaution, Innovation. The media can play a critical role in shaping knowledge, perceptions and choices of publics and policy makers about early warnings and the actions or inactions of the main players in these dramas. The essay summarises significant changes in the political economy, technology and culture of the media that have a bearing on these issues. The piece concludes that the risks and opportunities represented by online, and particularly social, media must be given if anything more attention than research and policy communities used to pay to print and broadcast media.
