A Realistic Climate Proposal Selected For Judge's Choice Award
A team of students at MIT working at the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change created a proposal to answer the question: “ What international climate agreement should the world community make?” and submitted it to the Climate CoLab Contest. A group of expert judges chose four finalists and web visitors then voted for their favorite proposal for an international climate agreement. Two winners were chosen: the proposal that received the most votes and the judges' pick.
The Joint Program Students' entry, A Realistic Climate Proposal, was chosen as a winner by the judges!
As a winning team, student representatives briefed the United Nations and U.S. Congress on their proposal. The UN briefing was held on December 2 in New York, with a member and staffers of the United Nations Secretary General's Climate Change Support Team. The U.S. Congress briefing was held on December 7 in Washington, D.C., with staffers of the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.
CONGRATULATIONS to Team Members: Tim Cronin, Arthur Gueneau, Jen Morris, Dan Chavas, and Paul Kishimoto!
