Newspaper articles with environmental content from 10 different Turkish dailies between October-December 2002 and March 2003 have been critically read and analysed under the aspects of variety and intensity of the topics discussed in these articles. In addition, columnists' articles with environmental content/referral have been a question of analysis during the preparation of this research project. It is concluded that even though there is an interest for the environmental problems in the Turkish printed media, the frequency of the release of environmental-related articles is low. Furthermore, the research reveals that environmental topics are rarely discussed by the newspaper columnists.
