"Even though the problem of what to do about global climate change is very complex, recent examples like Wikipedia, Google, and Linux show that it’s possible to harness the collective intelligence of thousands of people around the world to solve complex global problems.

Thomas Malone, director of the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, talking about a new approach to addressing climate change that involves collaboration and competition. The Center’s Climate CoLab recently announced the winners of a contest generating “a wide range of innovative ideas for how the 21st century economy should evolve in light of the risks of climate change.” You can check out their proposals here.
