Coordinated global action is needed to address major interrelated issues such as climate change, renewable energy, and fresh water.

While the intellectual resources and the will to generate and implement action plans exist, most efforts have been impeded by political conflict, slow bureaucratic processes, media inaccuracies and a lack of effective public education on complex scientific issues.

Novim was formed to apply techniques and methodologies developed at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara to address these issues.

In 2008, Novim hosted the first in a series of study groups at the KITP on subjects of global concern.

Novim’s Just Science app features a color-coded video map of the planet, displaying how the land surface temperature changed between 1800 and 2009. Users can explore details by zooming into geographic regions, changing playback speeds, and linking to Wikipedia to reference contemporaneous world history. Currently available free for the iPhone or iPad, Just Science can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes Store.
