This appears to be another climate planning think-tank, but unlike many activist groups with a budget to employ professionals of their fields running real world costings. It will be interesting to see what they eventually come up with. As someone sympathetic to the Open Source movement, I’m keen to see what dozens and dozens of volunteers can come up with in the BZE climate plan as opposed to the plan by this paid think tank. We will see.
