“While the voice mails tackle climate change in different ways, few, if any, are politicized. Ken Eklund, the veteran designer behind FutureCoast and the popular alternate reality game World Without Oil, said using a fictional narrative to tackle a difficult issue encourages people to suspend judgment. ‘We have been made accustomed to the idea that essentially it’s climate change science versus climate change deniers and that is the conversation,’ he said. ‘What I think FutureCoast is really discovering is that if you go to the people, the conversation is not polarized. It’s really one where a different set of questions emerge about how to adapt.'” – Julia Pyper
