Is Geoengineering a Suitable Tool for the Climate Toolbox?

Monday, January 30, @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Emissions reduction, adaptation, and the development of new technologies are all part of the climate toolbox. But is there also a place for global-scale technologies to push back against climate heating? Geoengineering by reflecting incoming sunlight is one tool that has been proposed. This lecture will consider some arguments for and against geoengineering at a time when climate concerns are intensifying.

Free and open to the public.
