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.
Thank you for your proposal. We find the idea compelling. However, it does not directly address the intent of this particular competition. The aim of the contest is to develop ideas about how MIT's alumni community can help to implement the institution's existing Plan for Action on Climate Change.
We invite you to keep working on your proposal and perhaps submit to another Climate CoLab competition moving forward.

Thanks for considering our proposal. We disagree with your conclusion; the Plan for Action on Climate Change specifically mentions advocating for carbon pricing, and we offered a specific way to engage MIT alumni in that process. So how does it not directly address the intent of the competition?
