January 2023 Monthly Actions & Meeting W/ Andrew Jones, Climate Interactive Co-Founder

Average Rating:

Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. Go to your local chapter's page to find out more about your chapter's plans for listening in. January's Monthly Meeting will take place on Saturday, January 14th at 1:00 pm ET and featured a conversation with Andrew Jones, Climate Interactive Co-Founder.

What will it take to keep global warming below dangerous thresholds? Thanks to Andrew Jones and his team at Climate Interactive, we have answers to that question. They developed the climate simulators, C-ROADS and En-ROADS, that make it easy for users to see how combinations of various solutions will affect global temperatures. As Citizens' Climate Lobby explores legislation to address climate change, these simulators can show us how to get the biggest bang for our buck. (Spoiler alert: Pricing carbon has the greatest impact.) In addition to being the director and co-founder of Climate Interactive, Andrew has worked at the Rocky Mountain Institute and Sustainability Institute. He currently teaches system dynamics at MIT Sloan and the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dear CCL Volunteers, With many tears, wonderful memories, some relief and a bit of optimism, I have decided that this is the right time for me to join my husband in retirement. It’s been a challenging year that has included a number of reminders that life can be unpredictable and always is changing. I will miss being a member of staff, but there's a good ... more
