Engagement among States and decentralized, creative problem solvers can enhance the requisite cooperation to pick up the pace of solution implementation to match the rate of climate change. Global organizing capability, information sharing and innovation have enmeshed governments and civil society into new governance relationships. Technology has facilitated this process for many, but the hardware and software that has led to social networking is only a fraction of the story of dynamic, inclusive cooperation. Citizen sector actors hold both destructive and constructive capacity exceeding that of any previous era. While many remain overwhelmed by the scope of climate instability, members of civil society are responding with insight and charisma to coordinate public participation to implement climate solutions.
