Since climate change is a global problem and the result of a global economic externality, efforts to tackle climate change are necessarily global in nature. Originally, advocates hoped that climate change mitigation might follow a path similar to global action on the ozone hole, but climate change has turned out to be a far more wicked problem for global cooperation.

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).
All of this information and much more gets pulled together via our Global Policy Premium Roadmap, representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation. Topics you’ll find explored in the Premium Roadmap include:
- The history of international climate efforts
- Global emissions targets vs. global carbon pricing
- Game theory as applied to climate change policy
- COP21 and the transition to a voluntary climate regime commitments
- The distribution of historical and future GHG emissions
- What’s required for a 2o C pathway
- What’s required for a 1.5o C pathway
