“En-ROADS is quite simply a climate crisis game-changer for policymakers and people across the country. Everyone is hearing more and more about the science, but sometimes it takes a demonstration tool like En-ROADS for people to see first-hand that everyone of us needs to be on a war footing and mobilize to fight this crisis head-on… En-ROADS is the ultimate conversation starter.”U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate
“This MIT/Climate Interactive simulator is a terrific, fantastic tool – absolutely wonderful. What I like: it is honest, shows the interesting interplay between policies, and is a bugle call about how aggressive we need to be.”Washington State Governor
“En-ROADS is useful as a way to influence government, business, and public opinion to think, “Yes, it is possible to keep greenhouse gas concentrations below 450 ppm and temperature increase below two degrees.”Brazilian Congressman
“En-ROADS lit my brain on fire….in one screen, the model communicates the urgency of the climate change threat, powerfully debunks cherished myths, confirmed the importance of current commitments and emphasizes how much more we have to do.”PepsiCo VP, Global Water & Environmental Solutions
“En-ROADS teaches us that while it is still possible to avoid dangerous climate change, there are indeed no silver bullets to reach this goal, and we have our work cut out for us.”Former President of Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES)
“We found that the Climate Interactive simulator and workshop helped us remove ego from the strategic conversations. It really allowed us to see the interconnectedness of all the solutions so that we could work together and not in isolation.“formerly US-Europe Energy Transition Forum
“The Simulation engaged leaders from across sectors in an interactive, thought-provoking and solutions-focused discussion about strategies and policies to address global climate change. I think we all walked away with a better understanding of the complex energy and climate system and hope in our collective ability to drive a more sustainable future.“Director, Business Sustainability Collaborative
