Bellwether Climate Strategies


Dynamic solutions for our changing world

Empowering communities and working landscapes with tools and information to prepare for an uncertain future

Data + Analytics

Clear and actionable data on uncertainty, including local-scale agriculturally and ecologically relevant transformations of global climate model outputs and vulnerability scenarios from a system dynamics perspective.

Knowledge + Collaboration

Collaboration tools to share local expertise and facilitate flexible and responsive decision-making, the most resilient form of planning in a shifting landscape. Visualization and report generation.

Who we are


We started working together in graduate school at Stanford, where we studied how plants understand and adapt to their changing environments. Now we want to understand and adapt to ours.

Ted Wong

Ted Wong is a computational ecologist who knows plants and writes code. He connects the dots between the data that come out of global climate model projections and the information that farmers, foresters, and conservation managers can use to anticipate the coming season and the coming years—because not just the weather but the cues we used to use to predict it are changing. Ted graduated from the Yale Forestry School before getting his Ph.D. in plant ecology from Stanford, and is currently developing a metric to assess municipal resilience for the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index.

Jessica Ruvinsky

Jessica Ruvinsky is a field biologist and science writer. As a journalist (The Economist, Science, Discover) she asks questions. As a consultant, she helps people listen to each other’s answers. She wrote the Strategic Vision for the Organization of Biological Field Stations and the National Association of Marine Labs, synthesizing environmental scientists’ predictions of their field’s future with facility managers’ ambitions and constraints, and continues to help ecological organizations anticipate emerging trends. Jessica has a B.S. from Yale and a Ph.D. from Stanford.
