Arashitilar Revista de Ciencias Socialesvol. We now see that in the texts a number of discursive references concur; these are negotiated and governed by the differential of power each possesses, which on occasion makes them places for struggle and control, showing traces of conflicting ideologies, for power rests upon relations of difference and particularly on the effects of differences in social structures. The analyzed media, representatives of political tendencies with access to power in Chile at present, are consistent in moving the actions of mitigation and adaption to climate change away from people and the locale level, minimizing the potential of the media to change the behavior of the individuals, their practices and social structures.

Pitalito, Cesar, una vereda entre el despojo y el desalojo Verdad Abierta From such viewpoint, the most pertinent analysis device is Critical Discourse Analysis CDAwhich is utilized in this research.

Results By applying the selection criteria defined in the methodological framework, we obtained a corpus of 58 news items on climate change in Chile over the analyzed period, on which discourse analysis will be made. A way to approach the agenda setting process is the notion of framing, as it allows configuring the limits of a debate by establishing a definite number of alternatives, which will have be observable for decision makers at the moment of understanding, planning and managing a public policy problem Pralle, In this last discourse, the framings we found point at: Since at present the first steps are being taken to generate adaption policies, with an emphasis both on the production of scientific information and on national and international meetings for discussion.

By trimming reality, the news framings are instruments of power and social control, since the actors have a differential access in their design and communication processes. There are no citizen actors in these narratives. Bassett and Fogelman The research, unprecedented for the Chilean case, is aimed at acknowledging the news framings by means of which climate change is communicated, since the media are the main source of information on climate change for decision makers and citizens.

The way climate change is represented in the clrdoba is key to inform people and communities about their responsibilities and rights regarding a suitable provision of Global climate Stability, 15 and in the case that such supply is scarce, which are the daily actions that have to be performed to contribute with them or regarding preparation for action in case the plans designed to minimize the associated risks fail. The noticeable economic growth in Latin America over the last decade has generated that a large number of our countries are considered middle income, which face critical disjunctives regarding climate change, as they have to address questions that are technically and politically difficult to answer: There is evidence that indicates that middle-income countries are more vulnerable to climate change impacts drought, food security, among others than poor ones, in the dilemma of adaption v.
