S104: Developing Decarbonization Solutions to Combat Climate Change in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
In many ways, the 2015 Paris Agreement marked a turning point in international efforts to combat climate change. Yet, even with growing commitments to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, much progress still needs to be made. A team of researchers based out of the Climate Interactive nonprofit and MIT recently developed the Climate EN-ROADS climate change solutions simulator, which allows users to test the carbon emissions reduction potential of different climate change solutions. In this course, we will have the opportunity to learn how different climate change mitigation solutions stack up against each other as we try to decarbonize the planet to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.
