Lane Lyceum: Global Warming and a Climate Solutions Simulator

by | Jun 25, 2020

In our latest Tuesday Night Lane Lyceum, Bob Place walked participants through the En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator and then invited input and suggested scenarios from the group.

The En-ROADS Climate Solutions Simulator is a fast, powerful climate simulation tool for understanding how we can achieve our climate goals through changes in energy, land use, consumption, agriculture, and other policies. The simulator focuses on how changes in global GDP, energy efficiency, technological innovation, and carbon price influence carbon emissions, global temperature, and other factors. It is designed to provide a synthesis of the best available science on climate solutions and put it at the fingertips of groups in policy workshops and roleplaying games. These experiences enable people to explore the long-term climate impacts of global policy and investment decisions.

En-ROADS is being developed by Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, Todd Fincannon, UML Climate Change Initiative, and MIT Sloan.
