Waste Not WHY Not

46. En-ROADS, a climate simulation

May 19, 2021

Do you enjoy gaming? Do you enjoy surviving our climate apocalypse? Well, good news! You can enjoy both at the same time! 

Last fall, Nature N8 went to a World Climate Simulation event, called En-ROADS, where participants roleplay as different sectors to negotiate for better climate policies. N8 finds out what goes on throughout the simulation, and why this game was created in the first place.  

Thank you to Omplexity, TWYCC, and the Hive Taipei for organizing this En-ROADS session. And special shoutout to our Patreon patron Brian for inviting us to the event! 

You can play En-ROADS yourself on the Climate Interactive website. 

Finally, a quote on hope: 

“Hope is not a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch, feeling lucky. It is an axe you break down doors with in an emergency. Hope should shove you out the door, because it will take everything you have to steer the future away from endless war, from the annihilation of the earth's treasures and the grinding down of the poor and marginal... To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable.” ― Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark
