Public Perceptions of Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a technology with the potential to reduce carbon emissions and to help achieve the global climate targets as defined in the Paris Agreement. PERCCSEPTIONS addresses one of the most pressing issues regarding climate mitigation: What affects the public acceptability of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in society?

Changing Nature - A lexical and argumentative analysis of public debates on nature

The linguistic and argumentative representations of nature have consequences for policy action in the environmental domain. The value we assign to nature, and the way we construe of nature as an object of public deliberation is therefore crucial for tackling environmental issues. In this project we analyse how this has changed the last decades and implications for public debate.
