We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn't otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

Hi Mike,
In this contest we were looking for ideas that related to the governance of research. Unfortunately many of the proposals did not address the question adequately. Most of the proposals were more focussed on the operational issues or the technologies themselves and did not elaborate on the means for minimising the environmental or political risks of doing research. This proposal has an aspect that does deal with the research governance aspect, but we found that it did not provide enough detail in that respect. As such, we have had to rule this proposal as 'off topic'.
