The EN-ROADS Interactive Climate Solutions Simulator with Paul Stancioff

Tuesday, June 11 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Join us at the Camden Public Library on Tuesday, June 11, at 6:30 PM for a fascinating and interactive experience using MIT’s EN-ROADS climate simulator, led by a Paul Stancioff, a trained EN-ROADS facilitator.

This presentation demonstrates an engaging, accessible, but highly sophisticated climate policy simulator, inviting the audience to propose various climate solutions and giving instant feedback on their long-term climate impact. The simulator allows users to explore the impact that dozens of policies—such as electrifying transport, pricing carbon, and improving agricultural practices—have on hundreds of factors like energy prices, temperature, air quality, and sea level rise.

Developed by Climate Interactive, the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, and Ventana Systems, En-ROADS is a system dynamics model carefully grounded in the best available science, and has been calibrated against a wide range of existing integrated assessment, climate, and energy models.

Paul Stancioff, retired professor of Physics at UMF, recently returned to his hometown of Camden. He and his wife, Cynthia Stancioff, are actively engaged in promoting policies and actions to address the impact that human produced greenhouse gases are having on the planet.
