The New York Times' article, "Global Warming & Climate Change" and the Courier-Mail's article, "Climate change to blame for summer of extreme heat and damaging floods, report says" both have visuals to enhance the seriousness of their topic, global warming.
Though these two articles are very similar, the New York Times included a map of the U.S. indicating which states have been affected the most, which helps the readers personalize such a broad topic.
The writing goes along with this visual, because it compares the U.S. to other countries around the world and how each area is harmed by the effects.
In the Courier-Mail article, however, the visual is simply a picture of an over-crowded beach, while the writing talks about bushfires, tornadoes, and damaging rain. While global warming can be attributed to overpopulation, I feel as if the multi-media effects should closely correlate with what is largely going on in the article.
