CritiCC's member Núria Almiron have published with Catia Faria the paper "Climate change impacts on free-living nonhuman animals. Challenges for media and communication ethics" in the journal Studies in Media and Communication, 7(1), 37-48, 2019. Full text in open access.

Abstract: The mainstream discussion regarding climate change in politics, public opinion and the media has focused almost exclusively on preventing the harms humans suffer due to global warming. Yet climate change is already having an impact on free-living nonhumans, which raises unexplored ethical concerns from a nondiscriminatory point of view. This paper discusses the inherent ethical challenge of climate change impacts on nonhuman animals living in nature and argues that the media and communication ethics cannot avoid addressing the issue. The paper further argues that media ethics needs to mirror animal ethics by rejecting moral anthropocentrism.
