I am in Needham, MA and teach at Bentley University in Waltham MA.  I will be running both the World Climate Simulation and either the Climate Solutions Workshop or Simulation in my two classes toward the end of the semester.  I would love to observe the Climate Solutions Workshop or Simulation implementation.


I would also be interested in coming to a meeting of those of us in the Boston area who are interested in running En-ROADS.  Happy to come to MIT.

Here is a Zoom link we can use on March 19th at 6:30pm.  I will be using the breakout room feature when my classes begin to meet virtually the following week.  This will be good practice for me.  


I am also happy  to help anyone not familiar with Zoom get going on it.

I ran my two Climate Solutions Workshop for my two classes last Friday.  It went very well.  Thanks to Jillian James for sitting in and providing some feedback afterwards.


I will be running the workshop in 60 minutes this coming July for a group of teachers (number unknown as of now) who will be participating in the Earth Science Information Partners meeting which is being done virtually for the first time.


I welcome any suggestions on running this with teachers.

Hi all,


I wasn't sure where to put this out so I am sending it to this forum. They are three concerns regarding the presentation.


First, in the slide that we can use to introduce the program all but one that frame the problem show the effects of sea level rise. However, bringing temps down to 2 degrees of less decrease sea level rise from 1.2 to 1 meter. Is that really significant. (From the slides that means we will be able to see the horns on the bull on Wall Street.) These changes can be very graphically illustrated so I get why they are chosen. Does anyone have ideas of pictures that can be clearly linked to climate change and clearly indicate improvement with temperature mitigation?


Second, I recently finished the climate justice webinar. I agree with its principles and in addition agree that it a way of creating a broader constituency. However, there are clearly constituencies that are going to be hurt by these changes. Coal miners feel threatened not merely for their jobs but also for their culture. Others from dairy farmers to automotive mechanics could feel a pinch. Then of course there are fossil fuel corporations that I am told are rich and powerful.


It would seem to me that at least acknowledging and trying to identify who they are if not coming up with strategies to mitigate their concerns.


Third, I ran a one on one zoom presentation with a friend. He is something of a contrarian which is actually helpful to find problems. For all fossil fuels he used the stop utilization 100% starting 2020. that of course had a great effect but would of course shut down the economy about as effectively as Covid 19. he said if it is on the scenario then it is fair game. My comment was that people wouldn't bring that to the table because of its consequences but if someone did it is up to the moderator to explore those consequences and see if the group would endorse those changes. That still begs the question as to whether such drastic scenarios should be available.

Yes!  Would love to join a video meetup.

I would love to participate in a video meeting but I have a conflict with 3/18 at noon.

I am looking forward to talking to everyone who can make our En-ROADS Meet Up this afternoon at 4pm.  The connection information - which I posted in an earlier comment above a couple of weeks ago is here.

Actually, how about a Doodle poll with several options next week?  Please fill out by EOD Friday. https://doodle.com/poll/7hemnbi642dr6kki

Doodle is a great idea.  I just filled it out.


We can keep the meeting informal this time. I also know that people have been desiring En-ROADS practice, so if someone wants to "be a facilitator" for 5-10 minutes, we could do all listen and give constructive feedback.  I guess it might be like Toast Masters.  A possibility if there is a volunteer.

I have filled out the Doodle poll.  I could set up a Zoom session for us and post it on this discussion.

Geoff,


We're using this particular forum for organizing New England based events.  


I think you'll have better engagement and more responses if you post this message in the main En-ROADS forum, here:

https://support.climateinteractive.org/support/discussions/forums/47000326051


Best,

Travis
