Mapping the Interdisciplinary Landscape of Climate Engineering

Monday, October 17, 2016 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Klarman Hall, Klarman Auditorium
232 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853

Panel Discussion:
- Charles Greene (Cornell, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences)
- Wylie Carr (USGS)
- Ben Kravitz (Pacific NW Nat. Labs)
- Josh Horton (Harvard)
- John Moore (Beijing Normal Univ. & Arctic Centre, Univ. Lapland)
- Kate Ricke (UC San Diego)

Does the 1.5 degree target for limiting temperature rise set last year in Paris open the door to geoengineering approaches to managing climate risk? Is the term “geoengineering” useful, versus focusing upon particular technologies for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (“negative emissions technologies”) or reflecting solar radiation?

What do we know, what needs to be answered, and how do scholars see the topic progressing... or not? How can interdisciplinary research generate usable knowledge for decision-makers, who will have to decide which technologies and strategies have a place alongside mitigation and adaptation responses to climate change? What role have publics played in these deliberations over research and governance, and what role can they play in the future?

Part of a workshop funded by the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future
