There is no consensus among Europeans on the need to address climate change. A careful analysis of how protagonists are using social media suggests that not only are they not engaging with each other, but that there is huge potential for climate change policy making in Europe to further fragment our political landscape. Fieschi's latest research suggest that it could leave the way open for populists to take up the mantle of freedom fighters while climate supporters become more authoritarian. Unpack the meaning and political consequences of the latest research with us.
