Climate CoLab

Hannah Lee sent me this interesting project put together by the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence: the Climate CoLab.

What should we do about climate change?
Somehow we have to answer this question. You can help.
The Climate CoLab seeks to harness the collective intelligence of contributors from all over the world to address global climate change.
The Climate CoLab is a forum where teams create proposals for what to do in a series of annual contests.

The current contest is to respond to the prompt: "How should the 21st century economy evolve, bearing in mind the risks of climate change?"  I'm excited to learn what our collective intelligence has to say about this.

In unrelated but hilarious news, see this comic about doing science courtesy of Reed Walker. (If you're not an active researcher then this probably isn't funny to you, sorry.)
