Dear Tina, Thanks for getting started on your proposal of 9 steps to combat climate change under the Global Climate Action Plan contest of MIT's Climate CoLab. I'm one of the Fellows for this contest, here to serve as a liaison to the Colab, answer any questions you may have, and help provide substantive feedback to strengthen proposals. Thank you for including selections from the various regional contests in your proposal. Now, you'll need to work to flesh out how these can fit together in a comprehensive global plan. Good news is that the regional contest deadline has been extended until August 31, so you may have new proposals to select from in the coming days. Feel encouraged to help spread the world about the regional and global contests alike to your networks, to help expand the pool of ideas! Also, many of your suggestions are ideas for individual action-- which are great, and certainly needed. But how might governments, businesses, municipalities, and local organizations also take meaningful actions that, linked together, can effect global change? These may be areas to further explore in your proposal. Thank you for your contributions to the CoLab and look forward to seeing how you continue to develop your ideas.

Thanks J. Perron for your suggestions. However, the deadline has passed. Sorry I did not see this sooner. I hope that the suggestions made herein will help raise awareness that there is no silver bullet to climate change and that is starts with each of us on an individual level to do our part.
