Key to Solving Climate Change

“Rood has a great blog called ‘Climate Change’ that is archived at and it's really refreshing to read the breadth and depth of his research…

“The goal, he says, is to take climate discourse out of the political arena and return it to a problem-solving public policy issue. Interestingly, he thinks the best answer for doing so is an 'open-source' answer. Rather than waiting for scientists to get their sound-bytes right so they can compete against short-sighted political desires, he thinks it's going to be community-based problem solving with regard to climate impacts that will turn the tables.”
