Andrew (Drew) Jones is Co-Founder and Co-Director of Climate Interactive. An expert on international climate and energy issues, his quotes and data stories appear frequently in the New York Times, The Washington Post, and other media.
Jones and his team at CI and MIT Sloan developed “C-ROADS”, the climate simulation that was used by John Holdren, Jonathan Pershing, and John Kerry in advance of the Copenhagen and Paris climate summits. Ahead of the recent passage of US climate legislation, his team engaged 128 members of the US Congress with the En-ROADS simulator.
Trained in system dynamics modeling at Dartmouth College and through a M.S. at MIT, Jones has worked at Rocky Mountain Institute and served dozens of clients ranging from the CDC to Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
Jones co-accepted the System Dynamics Society’s award for the best real-world application of modeling. He won Dartmouth College’s Ray W. Smith award for the most significant contribution to the status of the College.
Possible session title
Simulating Grounded Hope: the En-ROADS Climate Workshop
Jones will lead the “En-ROADS Climate Workshop”, created with MIT Sloan, which uses the decision-maker-oriented En-ROADS computer simulation to help a group explore system-wide global solutions to climate change, including renewable energy, oil policy, less deforestation, carbon removal, energy efficiency, population, coal taxes, carbon pricing, electrification and other policies.
The model was built by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan and has been used in settings ranging from the US Congress to the U.N. Secretary-General’s climate team to the HSBC bank.
