Attention! DK climate specialists. Come out! Come out! Come out, wherever you are! It's time for some serious cohesive teamwork!
MIT's Climate CoLab yesterday launched its annual contest, inviting teams to submit global or regional/national proposals addressing the question: "How should the 21st century economy evolve, bearing in mind the risks of climate change?"
I think we are up to the challenge. What about you? And guess what? If we make the finals, we get a chance to have our proposal presented to the United Nations AND to the frigging US Senate! (Now, THAT'S certainly an esteemed body when it comes to ANY economy, let alone a mere 'green' one -- btw, that'd be SNARK).
Not sure yet if the winners get written up in the New York Times but hey, we would be working with the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. And in my book, that's pretty damned prestigious! Plus, I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that if we did a good enough job, we might be able to use some of our 'inside-the-climate-beltway-connections' to get mentioned in The Evening Call Warming! Now isn't that twitter-iffic?
