Climate Rapid Overview and Decision Support (C-ROADS) Simulator 

C-ROADS is a computer simulation that helps people understand the long-term climate impacts of emission reduction policy scenarios. C-ROADS translates climate mitigation scenarios and pledge levels into emissions, concentrations, temperature, and per-capita emissions outcomes at the global level. The model quickly runs real-time policy analysis, allows users to test “what if scenarios”, and analyzes up to 15 different nations or regions simultaneously.
