The context • The UNFCCC Cop 15 Conference in Copenhagen, December 7th – 19th, Bella Center • I was there as a freelancer attending the last days of the Conference December 17th-19th • I interviewed journalists from all over the world attending the Cop 15 during the whole conference (7th to 19th december)

The survey • Comparing national variations in reporting of climate change science during Cop 15. • A short questionnaire consisting of 3 questions : 1) list of topics followed 2) proportion of science & technology-angled stories vs other angles 3) space given to scientists in the media/in the country
