Our latest MC3 article, "How positive is 'change' in climate change? A sentiment analysis", was just published in Environmental Science and Policy. Exploring the results from interviews conducted with 11 local government across British Columbia, this paper describes the non-computational sentiment analysis of the word ‘change’ on the subject of climate change, local climate innovation and development path change. The goal of our study was to address the lack of agreement among climate researchers and policy-makers over the meaning of change and to determine whether changes were actually occurring in their development paths. As a result, several drivers and barriers to change were identified at the local government level.
