Helping people to understand climate change
Climate scientists have reached a consensus that the rise of average temperature is mostly caused by human activity. Yet, this consensus is not common at the socio-economic level, with many debates in social media. My goal is to facilitate the understanding of climate change controversies as reflected by different debate communities. Interestingly, debate websites have not been in the research focus in the same extent as other online media, despite the advantage they possess as the debate topic is accompanied by arguments labelled as pro or against.
