"Do we need to radically change our lives to stop climate change?" | My recent interview with Maria Armoudian of Public Interest Media New Zealand:…/do-we-need-to-radically-change-ou…/

Scientists say we still have time to address climate change and we’ve made headway, but we still have a long way to go. What do we need to do to combat climate change and how worried should we about global warming? Maria Armoudian speaks with renowned climate scientist Michael E. Mann.
“@TomFennewald and I just published our study of @fateoftheworld, a #climatechange game, We found that playing Fate promoted complex understandings of climate change. Check it out in Simulation and Gaming...

Le réchauffement climatique est crucial pour l'avenir de l'humanité. Comprendre comment combattre ce réchauffement climatique est tout aussi crucial, pour que chacun contribue à effectuer les "bonnes ...actions" adaptées. Fate of the world est à mon sens le meilleur outil pour parvenir à cette compréhension, tout en gardant un aspect ludique propice à la pédagogie. See More

We're currently girding ourselves for the next push on the project.

Headlines like the one below help us focus on the task.

There is a “very high risk” that the most ambitious global warming limit set in the Paris climate agreement is likely to be exceeded&nbs

Maxojir is back with another Fate of the World Let's Play.

Last time, he played cards according to real-world national intentions, but this time he's trying his own strategies, as he navigates humanity through the Fuel Crisis scenario.

Time to try to save civilization! In some for at least XD The ever rare "let's play" you'll get from me, as there are very few games I consider worthwhile. F...

Tesla have just built the world's largest battery in South Australia.

Battery technology is a key link to a carbon-negative future, as it mitigates the main problem of renewable energy sources like solar and wind: they don't work all of the time.

Once humanity can effectively store the energy we generate during sunny, windy periods, we are well on our way to eliminating fossil fuels completely from the energy sector.

SOUTH Australia’s mega battery at Jamestown will be powered up for the first time in coming days as testing of the 100MW facility begins — and US tech billionaire Elon Musk has sent his congratulations.
An astonishing new map that highlights the unprecedented impact of climate change over the last 20 years has been captured by Nasa. The animation shows our planet’s seasonal fluctuations as seen from space after the US space agency condensed two decades of data into just a few minutes.

Here is a fascinating play-through of Fate of the World, making all choices to match the player's predictions for each region's real world future.

This summary of major positive trends should help dispel any feelings of helplessness or paralysis in the face of climate change.

As Stern says "There is no long-run high-carbon growth story because it creates an environment so hostile that it turns development backwards." The rate of these advances is encouraging.…/seven-megatrends-that-could-b…

Until recently the battle to avert catastrophic climate change seemed to be lost. But with the tipping point just years away, the tide is finally turning, thanks to innovations ranging from cheap renewables to lab-grown meat and electric airplanes

"This assessment concludes, based on extensive evidence, that it is extremely likely that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.

For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence."…/11/03/clim…/us-climate-report.html

A report from 13 federal agencies says humans are the main cause of global warming, a position at odds with some in the Trump administration.

The latest dev blog is up, reflecting on our experiences with the Kickstarter, and where we take the project next.

The path forward 6th November 2017UncategorisedSooth Sayer The immediate aftermath of the Kickstarter was a strange sense of calm. Succeed or fail, it is a relief once the worry and uncertainty are over. In the aftermath, we’ve been looking back at what went right and what went wrong, and planning w...

Fate of the World has 3 degrees as its victory condition. We've sometimes questioned whether that was too pessimistic?

One viable strategy in Fate of the World is geoengineering. (Warning, comes with downsides.) The longer humanity drags its heels, the more likely it becomes essential. Right now it looks like next year could be a big one for geoengineering policy debate.…/2017-10-paris-climate-goals-recede-geoen…

Even if you are terrified of heights, jumping out of a plane with a makeshift parachute may begin to look like a good idea once you know the aircraft is running out of fuel.

The curtain has just dropped on our Kickstarter campaign, and sadly we did not hit our goal. The next couple of weeks, we’ll be analysing where we went wrong, and planning what we to do next.

Meanwhile, we want to thank all of you whose support made us feel this project is worthwhile!
