Workshop: FOCUS GROUP on Climate Intervention Research

23. June 2018, Boston / USA

"Meeting the world's goals for slowing climate change is proving to be a huge challenge. Some people argue that we should research ways to cool the climate directly--sometimes called geoengineering or climate intervention. Others are concerned that even researching these techniques may lead to irreversible harms and unintended consequences. All sides agree that this is not an issue to be decided by scientists alone."

Webinar: What We Know and Don't Know about Negative Emissions.

26. June 2018

"Join the Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment for the second installment of our "Assessing Carbon Removal" webinar series, where we will speak with three authors of a recently published systematic review of the carbon removal/negative emissions technologies research field. The study reviewed more than 6,000 documents on seven groups of technologies: bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), afforestation and reforestation, direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS), enhanced weathering, ocean fertilization, biochar, and carbon sequestration in soil. The authors argue that the carbon removal research field does not match the urgency of the large-scale deployment it proposes and call on researchers to expand their studies on pathways to deployment beyond the research and development stages."

Lecture: The National Security Implications of Solar Geoengineering: An Australian Perspective

21. July 2018, Brisbane / Australia

Presentation at the 25th World Congress of Political Science. "This paper seeks to explore the main national security implications for Australia if a regional state, or group of states, decide to begin a solar geoengineering program. It will restrict its discussion to the international security, diplomatic and foreign policy implications; although there are clearly also serious ecological and agricultural concerns. The analysis proceeds in four parts."

Conference: EASST2018

25.-28. July 2018, Lancaster / UK

Two panels on climate engineering:

 
"In this context, and in step with many other progressive responses, the EASST 2018 Conference will explicitly bring together, promote and celebrate meetings between, and differences within, the cultural and intellectual constituencies of STS. STS is located at the connexions of people, things and values. It is engaged with our sociotechnical lives and explores our interdependencies with multiple others. Preoccupations with logic and epistemology in early STS have been mixed with an intensified concern with aesthetics, values, ontologies, politics and emotions. Our conference theme promotes generative mixing through meetings in all senses of this word: as a practical activity, a substantive topic, a political engagement and as theoretical exploration."

Panel: Climate Engineering: Ethical and Political Concerns

22. August 2018, Hamburg / Germany

Panel at the ECPR General Conference. "The point of this panel is to explore some of the ethical and political hurdles that specific climate engineering technologies will have to overcome if they are ever to justifiably comprise part of our response to anthropogenic climate change."

Conference: WC Climate Change 2018

13.-18. September 2018, Rome / Italy

"The Organizing Committee of the World Congress on Climate Change 2018: Impacts & Responses invites you to participate in the congress, which will be held on Sept 13-15, 2018 at Rome, Italy. The conference will be the culmination of a momentous twelve months in the climate debate and needs a breakthrough in the form of a roadmap for a future climate change deal. Early in the year, scientific evidence of global warming, as set out in the fourth assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), put the reality of human-induced global warming beyond any doubt. What we are facing is not only an environmental problem, but has much wider implications: For economic growth, water and food security, and for people's survival - especially those living in the poorest communities in developing countries."

Conference: 2018 Negative Emissions Conference: The big picture of negative emissions

30. - 31. October 2018, Canberra / Australia

"To ensure that Australia plays a leading role and has a strong international voice, a holistic approach across the humanities, arts, and sciences is needed; bringing us into line with other nations. This conference aims to explore negative emissions technologies holistically from practicality, feasibility, and environmental/societal impact perspectives."
