From Bloomberg Green
It was on Earth Day 2016 when more than 170 nations signed the Paris Agreement calling for limiting global warming “to well below 2°C.” Putting together the terms took years, with the difficult diplomatic work wrapped up by the end of 2015. Of course, the world’s climate emissaries would want to wait for a more dramatic date to sign.
Climate Interactive, a nonprofit think tank, has spent the last nine years developing a tool with the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative and Ventana Systems Inc., dubbed En-ROADS, that lets everyone test the impact of climate solutions. It’s a policy simulator designed for use in role-playing workshops for negotiators, academic seminars, and as a learning aid for curious individuals.
Bloomberg Green has used En-ROADS as an engine to create a simplified scenario menu, streamlining the mechanics just enough to let regular people test their assumptions about specific climate solutions — and what it will take to keep the world below 2°C.
