Our purpose

Harness the positive power of social media

Data visualisation

We use data from social media to help visualize online discussions and provide a clearer understanding of current thinking.

Analyse data sets

  • We download publicly available datasets from twitter to identify trends and insights

The cop26 dataset contains:

  • Twitter data from more than 23 time periods
  •  > 400k rows of data
  • Analysis of >270M Retweets
  • Geolocation of tweets
  • Influencer analysis

You can use the PowerBI dashboard to: 

  • search for tweets
  • find out more info about tweeters e.g. who tweets the most, who gets the most likes etc
  • changes over time e.g. top hashtags in each dataset
  • find the urls and media that have been tweeted

The Johnson effect – a twist on popularism – saying something that one group wants to hear – whilst doing the opposite thing for a more powerful group

COP26 Glasgow 31 October

In the lead up to COP26 the key tweet from the UN Secretary General: "We are weeks away from #COP26, but seemingly light years away from reaching our #ClimateAction targets. We need more ambition from all countries in three key areas — mitigation, finance and adaptation. We must get serious. And we must act fast. #UNGA Antonio Guterres:

The three groups we collect regular datasets on are:

  1. @Cop26
  2. #ClimateAction
  3. #FridaysForFuture

All tweets and tweet metadata is publicly available.

Climate inaction & IPCC August Report - failing to decide is the same as deciding to fail

  • The  IPCC Working Group I report, Climate Change 2021: the Physical Science Basis was published in August 2021 – which states: Climate change widespread, rapid, and intensifying – IPCC — IPCC
  • Boris Johnson’s response to climate change demonstrates what Patricia Espinosa (Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change) in August 2021 stated, in response to the latest IPCC report, that failing to decide (on required actions) may end up being the same as deciding to fail.

COP26 - 31 October

COP26 – 31 October 2021 Glasgow

  • Many people are wanting and waiting for COP26 to make significant progress on each of the 196 members to reduce their greenhouse gas emission so that global warm is be kept at 1.5 degrees.

Climate action is too slow - the facts

The facts show climate action is too slow

  • The Paris Agreement in 2015 was the key milestone in gaining agreement from 196 countries to limit global warming to below 2 degrees, whilst acknowledging that 2 degrees would be a catastrophe.
  • Since 2015 very little progress has been made – COP26 2021 is being seen as a make or break time.
  • Although an issue of debate, many scientists state that our current trajectory will lead to the planet warming by more than 2 degrees.
