Lecture: Emission Impossible: Geoengineering in the Face of Climate Change

01. May 2018, Oxford / UK

"This seminar looks to explore arguments for and against the implementation of geoengineering. What are the economic, social and environmental implications of proposed schemes? Can we afford not to employ them? Is geoengineering ethical? Does it work and if so, is it possible to reach the targets set out in the Paris agreement without it? These are just some of the topics we hope to investigate."

Lecture: Estimating the global agricultural impact of geoengineering using volcanic eruptions as natural experiments

07. March 2018, Washington, DC / United States

"Solomon Hsiang combines data with mathematical models to understand how society and the environment influence one another. In particular, he focuses on how policy can encourage economic development while managing the global climate. His research has been published in Nature, Science and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."

Lecture: Climate Engineering Governance: Cases for Public Participation

06. April 2018, Tempe / USA

"Even the most ardent supporters of geoengineering acknowledge the risks inherent in these technologies, but uncertainty goes both ways. There are also risks in not using a technology that could help mitigate the worst effects of climate change. The challenge for policymakers, therefore, is to assess the risks of developing—and possibly deploying—geoengineering technologies against those of not deploying them. Policymakers can’t make these decisions alone. It’s all hands on deck, and here’s why. RSVP here."
