Climate Action Simulation
Research by a team led by Dr. Rooney-Varga of UMass Lowell shows that taking part in the Climate Action Simulation improves participants’ knowledge of the actions needed to address climate change, boosts both personal and emotional engagement with climate issues, and leaves participants feeling empowered to address climate change.
En-ROADS for Business
This review explores how the global bank HSBC used En-ROADS to engage its employees to learn more about climate change and to understand their corporate climate strategy. It covers: lessons learned through the use of En-ROADS at HSBC, lessons that may help other organizations successfully adopt En-ROADS and other systems thinking tools.
World Climate Simulation
This paper, co-authored by scientists at MIT and UMass Lowell, explores how the World Climate Simulation role-playing game may help reduce polarization and build consensus towards science-based climate action.
This paper describes C-ROADS, a transparent, intuitive policy simulation model that provides policymakers, negotiators, educators, businesses, the media, and the public with the ability to explore, for themselves, the likely consequences of GHG emissions policies.
1.5°C Scenarios with minimal carbon removal
This paper explores scenarios that limit warming to 1.5°C with varying assumptions about the amount of carbon dioxide removal that is available.
Bioenergy emissions relative to coal
Displacing coal with wood for power generation will worsen climate change. Learn more about this study from MIT, UMass Lowell and Climate Interactive researchers.
