Climate change and political polarisation are two of the 21st century’s critical social and political issues. However, their interaction remains understudied. Here, we investigate the online discussion around the UN Conference of The Parties on Climate Change (COP) using Twitter data from 2014 to 2021.

cop26Buzz is a collections of real-time visualisations which display the multiple facets of the conversation around COP. The website was built statically using plain Javascript and the D3 library.
