Climate Tweetoscope

When the media or us talk about climate change, we mean temperatures, storms, droughts, cyclones, polar bears ;  while the researchers talk about observations, circulation models, temperature anomalies

But do the concerns of scientists sometime converge with those of the general public and media? This is what you can see thanks to climate Tweetoscope which offers interactive exploration of topics related to climate change and its consequences. Analyzing news in the web since May 2015 with Twitter as a proxy, the Tweetoscope aims to provide an evolving collective representation of questions and debates on this major societal issue.

This platform is exposed until March 30, 2016 at the exhibition le Climat à 360° of the Museum Cité des Science et de l’Industrie in Paris. Throughout the exhibition, the team of ISC-PIF invites you to contribute to its evolution through fun and educational applications.

Visualizations proposed by Tweetoscope will be updated based on contributions.
