Call for Public Comments: Draft Code of Conduct for Scientific Research involving Geoengineering

30. April 2017

"This project builds upon a Draft Code of Conduct for Responsible Scientific Research involving Geoengineering that was prepared by legal scholars Anna-Maria Hubert and David Reichwein, which aims to establish guidelines for the responsible conduct of scientific research involving geoengineering. Published as a working paper in 2015, the Code of Conduct, together with accompanying commentaries, was developed to help equip decision-makers with the necessary knowledge to navigate these challenges. A link to the executive summary of the Code is here. [...] Analysis by legal experts and the comments and suggestions made via this website will be used to help refine the Code of Conduct. The purpose of this open consultation is not to generate votes for what is in and what out of the Code, but rather to ensure that all the relevant issues and arguments are reflected in the body of the text. The ultimate aim of the project is to deliver a robust text that States and other actors can draw upon to develop regulations and governance frameworks for geoengineering research."

Call for Application: Radiation Management Climate Engineering (Gordon Research Conference)

Deadline: 25. June 2017

"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. "

Job: Postdoctoral Opportunity: Environmental Modeling to Assess Efficacy and Unintended Consequences of Proposed Solutions to Climate and Energy Problems

(no deadline)

"We seek to understand the effectiveness of proposed solutions to climate and energy problems, and whether these proposed solutions would themselves be cause for environmental concern. Possible technologies and approaches could include widespread deployment of wind turbines, ocean thermal energy conversion, vortex engines, and solar geoengineering. It is hoped that the understanding gained would help both to reduce environmental damage and to alleviate poverty."
