I belong to a group of Fulbright Scholars that has been entertaining the idea of an online massively collaborative approach to the climate change crisis. Particularly, imagine a stack exchange site that assumes the operating premise that the climate crisis is real (thereby preventing the degeneration of the site into a debate) and focuses on clarifying and developing novel scientific, technological, economic and social concepts to attack the problem.
Question: Is there sufficient demand, beyond Earth Science Stack Exchange, for a Q and A site aiming at addressing concrete problems surrounding the climate crisis?
Several positive reasons to consider this:
(1) If and when governments warm to the idea of fighting climate change, a public repository of ideas and solutions will be ready and available online.
(2) Visibility and open access to the site will encourage novel ideas from outside established channels, but with moderation to prevent inappropriately simplistic or ill-formed ideas.
(3) Although Sustainable Living SE has a "climate change" tag, and is certainly an appropriate and broad forum for the topic, a specific SE site may be somehow simultaneously be more focused and more inclusive and diverse. (The main reason for this question is to determine what the ES SE thinks of this bullet point, since there is a ``climate change'' tag here!)
