Zoom Meeting TBA

Have you ever wondered which climate policies really make a difference in curbing climate change? Is putting a price on carbon the silver bullet? How about electric cars, increasing energy efficiency in buildings and manufacturing or planting a trillion trees? Using the very sophisticated EnROADS climate simulator developed by MIT and Climate Interactive, we can test the impacts of these and virtually any other climate action on global temperature in 2100. Without action, current models suggest that we will see a 3.6oC (6.5oF) increase by 2100, yet we know we must keep the temperature from rising more than 2oC maximum (1.5oC is better) in order to maintain a livable planet. Come to the EnROADS workshop on March 7 to test the impact of your favorite climate intervention and see how individual actions interact as a system to affect the overall outcome.
