Th e paper presents fi ndings of an exploratory research into the ways of discursively constructing the
role of humans in climate change. Relying on the broad framework of ecolinguistics and critical discourse
analysis, the authors conducted a comparative qualitative analysis of a corpus of texts published in Croatian
and anglophone media in a limited, randomly chosen period. Th e aim of the research was to establish what
»stories« (Stibbe 2015) related to this important social problem are given prominence in the analyzed
corpus of Croatian and anglophone media texts, what points of common knowledge, i.e.«topoi« (Wodak
2001) are activated in the interpretation of these stories and what strategies of constructing »social actors«
are used in the two corpora. Th e contrastive qualitative analysis makes it possible to gain insight into the
diff erences in the focus of reporting, prominence given to particular (sub)topics in particular communities
and rhetorical strategies used in shaping the discourse on climate change.
