Our use of the term “tackling climate change” for purposes of this Lite Roadmap is quite broad, covering a variety of non-technical responses to climate change, from behavior change to social movements. It complements other Roadmaps including Individual Action, Technical Solutions, Climate Engineering, and Natural Climate Solutions.

There are many questions about the future of efforts to tackle climate change, including:

  • The role of climate story-telling?
  • The role of civil disobedience (and even Ecotage)?
  • How the necessity defense will evolve?
  • The role of individual action?
  • The role of behavior change as opposed to systems change?
  • Dietary change as tackling climate change?
  • The role of divestment?
  • The role of climate justice?
  • The importance of recognizing climate change as a wicked problem?
  • Will climate activism become an effective social movement?

These are just some of the kinds of questions the Climate Web, based on 20,000 hours of knowledge curation, can help you explore. This Lite roadmap organizes some of the resources available to you.

For purposes of this Lite Roadmap, key Index Entries include:

Key Topical Headings for books, reports, and journal articles:

Key Topical Headings for news and opinion:

Key Topical Headings for extracted materials:

Key Topical Headings for websites, experts, and more:

Key Topical Headings for videos:

As a bonus, here are some recent additions to the Climate Web you might find thought-provoking that relate specifically to the topic of this Lite Roadmap. They represent just the smallest sliver of what’s organized in the Climate Web with the goal of facilitating access to your actionable knowledge. Note that links with “$$” sit behind paywalls and we can’t provide direct access. But we are always working to go through those sources to extract key idea and graphics to share under “fair use” rules.

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).


To clearly see the differences between a Lite Topical Roadmap and a Premium Topical Roadmap, you can take a look at both versions of the Under-Estimating Climate Risks Roadmap:

The **Premium Tackling Climate Change Roadmap” digs much deeper into the topics already flaged at the top of this page, among others. Representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation, the Premium Roadmap links together together explanatory prose, topical headings, individual sources and news stories, curated topical dashboards for exploring key topics, and even individual ideas and graphics the Climatographers have extracted from a wide range of key sources. The Premium Tackling Climate Change Roadmap covers topics including:

  • Climate story-telling
  • Civil Disobedience/Ecotage
  • Individual action
  • Behavior change
  • Dietary change
  • Changing minds on climate change
  • Climate change as a wicked problem
  • The evolving necessity defense
  • Climate activism as social movement

To get beyond Tackling Climate Change 101, and to take advantage of today’s collective knowledge when it comes to tackling climate change access the Tackling Climate Change Premium Roadmap here.

Other Roadmaps

You can review the Lite versions of more than 20 Topical Roadmaps, and access their respective Premium Roadmaps, through this Climate Site. We welcome your feedback on other Roadmaps you’d like to see.

Climate Chess

Particularly relevant to the topic of tackling climate change is the idea of Climate Chess. The entire Climate Web is structured to contribute to the playing of Climate Chess, and there is no Climate Chess Premium Roadmap per se. But you can explore the metaphor in significant depth at our dedicated Climate Chess Climate Site.

Note: This Climate Site has been extracted from the Climate Web to make the material contained here easier to access. That said, this Climate Site represents just the smallest sliver of what you can do with the Climate Web. You can learn more through the links present to right of the website page, and:
