Global Issues
What are your causes?

Global issues which contain a significant scientific component, and due to their controversial nature, have become difficult to discuss

How do you contribute?

Novim, a 501(c)(3) based at UCSB, convenes teams of scientists to analyze such issues and publish their findings without advocacy

What are important lessons you learned?

Maintaining the non-advocacy stance earns you a lot of enemies

What are your favorite social innovation resources?

Access to the top scientific minds worldwide, and the use of deliberative techniques developed at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (UCSB) and the Jasons

Any last thought you would like to share?

On October 20 we will be releasing the results of an 18 month, $1M study of global surface temperature, which for the first time combines all of the instrumented data recorded since 1850. The study has resulted in 4 peer-reviewed papers and over 600 GB of data that will be available to researchers online. It will also be displayable on a free iPad app
