Lecture: CSTPR seminar: Addressing climate change as an engineering challenge: Scientific expertise in U.S.

22. February 2017, Boulder / USA

"This talk examines the specific role of quantified expertise (in form of climate models and numeric indicators) for political decision-making on Geoengineering technologies in the U.S. A corpus of analysis, comprising all official documentation of U.S. American state affairs regarding Geoengineering technologies (1990 – 2015) serves as the database."

Webinar: Climate Justice: Examining Recent Developments

10. March 2017, webinar

"This seminar will begin with discussions of recent atmospheric trust litigation in the U.S., and the Urgenda case in the Netherlands, as examples of the advantages and limitations of using domestic courts to promote climate justice objectives. It will then address topics outside the litigation context by exploring the climate justice implications of the new differentiation model between developed and developing nations as reflected in the Paris Agreement and the human rights dimensions of global deployment of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS).

Conference: Radiation Management Climate Engineering: Technology, Modeling, Efficacy, and Risks (Gordon Research Conference)

23.-28. July 2017, Sunday River Newry / USA

"Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 25, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. [...] Climate engineering, also called geoengineering, is the idea of deliberately intervening in Earth's global radiation budget with the goal of reducing some of the risks of accumulating greenhouse gases. The two most frequently discussed possibilities are injecting aerosols into the stratosphere or adding aerosols to low marine clouds, both of which would reflect more sunlight to space; other possibilities include artificially thinning cirrus cloud cover to increasing outgoing longwave radiation. This conference will focus on the scientific questions associated with this set of technologies with the goal of fostering a better understanding of their efficacy and risks."

Conference: Good Hope For Earth Sciences - Session on Geoengineering

27. August - 1. September 2017, Cape Town / South Africa

"This session focuses on RM methods, especially those modifying the properties and coverage of clouds, the impact of stratospheric aerosol injection on clouds and precipitation, and other studies on stratospheric aerosol injection. Presentations on CDR methods will also be considered. CE is a controversial topic, and contributions on the ethics and politics of CE are also encouraged."
