Public Radio Highlights the Power of Climate Simulations

June 22, 2017 by Shanna Edberg

Earlier this week, NPR’s Heather Goldstone interviewed Climate Interactive partner and MIT Sloan professor John Sterman. The interview discusses Climate Interactive’s World Climate Simulation, a role playing group exercise of the UN climate negotiations that has served as an educational tool for students and CEOs alike. The game was recently updated to reflect President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, with a new delegation added to represent the alliance of US states that have pledged to uphold the Paris Agreement. The interview closes with a systems thinking perspective on addressing climate change and the benefits that can accrue to everyone when we take action.
