New commitments from China and the US could keep a significant 640 gigatons of CO2 out of the atmosphere Today the world’s attention is turning to the announcement of new climate commitments by the US and China. Using our global climate simulation C-ROADS, we have calculated the impact of the new commitments on the climate. […]
At a recent MIT conference, Climate Interactive member Prof. John Sterman provided an inspiring analysis of the relationship between big data, climate models and climate change action. As we see data and models become more advanced and more available, we’re only really reaching the first step toward solving the problem of climate change. The real […]
For over two years Climate Interactive has been working with Tsinghua University in China to create a learning tool to model the climate goals of Chinese provinces. Because of our work with Tsinghua, they have been able to provide the Chinese government with a new easy-to-use tool in order to meet their climate and energy […]
Climate Interactive and C-ROADS have recently been featured in a blog post by Adam Hasz of the Washington University Students for International Collaboration on the Environment (WUSICE). The post discusses our C-ROADS model and resources, in relation to their “U.S.-China Student International Conference on Climate Change and Sustainability”. Of particular relevance is our C-ROADS documentation […]
We’re excited to be working with Chinese colleagues to develop a version of the C-ROADS simulation in Chinese and calibrating it to match the dynamics of China. A partnership with Tsinghua University as part of the MIT-Tsinghua-Cambridge Collaboration, along with support from a team of partners like Peter Senge, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and others, has […]
Here in Bonn, Germany, at the UN climate conference, Dr. Elizabeth Sawin of Climate Interactive and Dr. Zhao Xiusheng of Tsinghua University collaborate on quantifying energy and climate futures. Here they are running experiments in the C-ROADS simulation.
