MIT’s John Sterman explores questions on the future of climate efforts and what we can do to build a safer, sustainable world. He demonstrates how interactive tools are being used by political leaders, policymakers, and members of the public around the world to build shared understanding of climate change and the task before us.
This video presents scenarios from the C-ROADS simulation and explores how far the Paris contributions get us, and what more is needed to keep warming to within 2° Celsius (3.6°F) of temperature change above pre-industrial levels. Read more about the analysis in this blog post.
John Sterman’s analysis begins at 36:16. Download the slides here (ppt).
John Sterman of MIT talks about how the climate deal that came out of COP21 is a major step forward, and why it does not go far enough.

John Sterman Demonstrating En-ROADS
John Sterman of MIT talks about the motivation for En-ROADS and leads the audience through creating an emissions reduction scenario in real time.
How to Save the World in 10 Minutes
Climate Interactive co-director Drew Jones presented results from the En-ROADS simulation to an audience at the Smithsonian Institution, at the National Museum of Natural History. Along with Bethany Patten of MIT Sloan School of Management, Drew had ten minutes to see if the audience’s ideas for addressing climate change were sufficient. Watch how they did.
FLOWER is a simple tool for analyzing, comparing, and evaluating policies and projects. It helps determine the project’s potential for achieving multiple benefits (known as “multisolving“) and the extent to which the project addresses equity.
This video exploring the dynamics of community investment and displacement, made with input from the Just Growth Circle and the Partnership for Southern Equity.
In this video, Beth Sawin explains the concept of Multisolving, or the search for systemic solutions that protect the climate while also improving health, equality, and well-being. Recorded in Paris during the COP21 climate negotiations, Beth discusses the potential of Multisolving to address several problems at once, and the impact of Multisolving on the Paris climate talks.
Climate Interactive partner and Director of University of Massachusetts Lowell Climate Change Initiative Dr. Juliette Rooney-Varga demonstrates how systems thinking can help us better understand climate change.
Drew Jones of Climate Interactive introduces Climate Pathways, a free app for the iPhone and iPad that compresses a climate model into a mobile device.
Climate Interactive partner and Director of UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative Dr. Juliette Rooney-Varga explains the importance of integrating climate change into biology education and shares an effective way to teach about climate change.
