dc.description.abstractA total of 120 Georgia newspaper reporters responded to a mail survey that included the New Ecological Paradigm–Human Exception Paradigm scale. The NEP–HEP scale assesses peoples’ attitudes about human–environment relations. The NEP questions refer to the need for a “natural balance” and “limits to human impact on nature” while the HEP questions present a view that humankind is different from and has control over nature. The survey also contained questions about the reporters’ demographics and organizational and community background factors. Analysis of the responses to the surveys indicated the journalists have dualistic NEP–HEP attitudes. The responses also indicated there are certain factors that have a strong correlation with the NEP–HEP responses, such as political orientation and gender.
