Thank you for submitting your proposal to this Climate CoLab contest. Because you had submitted it before July 18th, the contest Judges were able to review your proposal and provide you with some feedback, which we have included below. We hope that you will use it to further develop your work before the August 31 deadline. On that date at midnight Eastern Time, your proposal will be locked and considered in final form. The Judges will then select which proposals will continue to the Finalists round. Finalists are eligible for the contest’s Judges Choice award, as well as for public voting to select the contest’s Popular Choice award. The Winners will receive a special invitation to attend selected sessions at MIT’s SOLVE conference and showcase their work before key constituents in a workshop the next day. A few select Climate CoLab winners will join distinguished SOLVE attendees in a highly collaborative problem-solving session. In addition, if your plan is included in one or more winning global plans, you will receive Climate CoLab Points, and the top point-getters will receive shares of a cash prize of $10,000. Thank you for your great work and good luck! 2015 Climate CoLab Judges & Fellows Judges' feedback: Carbon sequestration in biomass is feasible, well known, and capable of binding large amounts of CO2. The proposal currently has several sections missing/blank, most importantly on the costs and benefits of the proposed measures, which makes it difficult to fully assess the proposal. Costs both in terms of money and space should be considered and the cost per ton of sequestered CO2 should be calculated. A large scale application of the proposed measure should be evaluated also taking into account the effects on agricultural productivity. Further details should be provided for all sections that are currently still empty.
