An Online Climate Policy Game
In emails to me, academic colleagues Timmons Roberts and Robert Brulle have recently touted the new online European Union Climate Policy Game. It looks very promising as a personal and classroom tool for exploring various alternatives in climate action policy. It is not for the faint of heart, however. Both Timmons and Bob "were pretty quickly voted out of office" for their climate policies. Can you do better at making meaningful changes in climate policy without courting a political backlash? As Bob Brulle notes, "It looks like an interesting program to use in a classroom situation" and it could stir up some engaging discussions and reflection on the choices ahead among climate change activists.
