Abstract for: C-ROADS Climate Simulation -- Reflections and New Directions

A team of system dynamicists from Climate Interactive, Ventana Systems, and MIT Sloan have created a policy-maker-oriented climate and energy simulation that is used at the top levels by the US State Department, the Chinese Government, and others. The modeling team will reflect on their lessons about getting a model to be USED and introduce a new extension that explores the energy transition.
