Lecture: Cafe Scientifique: Geoengineering the Climate

06. March 2018, Brandon Mill / UK

"Join us for a talk with Nick Owens discussing do two wrongs make a right? Human induced climate change is happening. This talk looks at the types of intervention being considered, their potential effectiveness and cost and, crucially, the ethics around direct manipulation of global climate."

Lecture: Climate Engineering: Benefits, Risks, Governance Challenges

17. January 2018

Speaker Ted Parson. "The treatment of CE thus far in climate research, assessment, scenarios, and policy debates has been gravely inadequate. In view of the prospects CE poses for great benefit or harm, it urgently requires expanded systematic research, and serious critical examination in climate-change assessments and scenarios – despite the challenges such examination will pose to many comforting, widely shared presumptions of climate policy debates. The prospect of CE also poses acute challenges to international decision-making and institutions – whether the aim is to use it competently, prudently, and legitimately as part of an effective strategic climate response, or to make an effective and enforceable decision to renounce it. Having an informed capability to deal with domestic and international policy challenges related to CE when they arise – which they will – requires urgent attention to its capabilities, risks, and governance needs."

Webinar: Integrated Assessment Modeling of Land-Use Implications of Bioenergy

30. January 2018, Webinar

"On January 30th, the committee will conduct a webinar on integrated assessment modeling of the indirect land use impacts of bioenergy production. Dr. Kate Calvin, Research Economist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Joint Global Change Research Institute and Dr. Alexander Popp, Group Leader for the Land-Use Management Research Domain III: Sustainable Solutions at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research will provide overviews of the approaches to modeling land use and capabilities to understand direct and indirect land use changes associated with bioenergy development within different integrated assessment models, as well as future research needs. Discussion and Q&A will follow their remarks."
