Lecture: The Peculiar Ethics of Geoengineering

21. November 2017, Chicago / USA

"As efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions continue to stall, some scientists argue that we must prepare for grand technological interventions into the climate system ("geoengineering"), including by commencing small-scale field testing. In this lecture, Stephen Gardiner (Professor of Philosophy, University of Washington) will discuss the large number of ethical issues raised by the prospect of geoengineering—including concerns about welfare, rights, justice, and political legitimacy."

Conference Session: Towards a 1.5°C World: The Ocean Response

11. February 2018, Portland / USA

"The Paris Agreement (COP21) has set an aspirational goal of limiting global surface warming to 1.5oC. This goal requires immediate action, with almost all future scenarios indicating that carbon dioxide removal or other geoengineering approaches will be needed. Irrespective of geoengineering measures, emissions must peak in a little over a decade and then rapidly decrease to become zero or even net negative. Given the prominent role of the ocean in storing emitted carbon dioxide and excess heat, the exploration of the potential response of the ocean to a drop in or even negative emissions is of scientific interest and of societal relevance."
