Conference Session: The Potential for Carbon- and Climate-Engineering to Offset Global Change

22.06.-02.07.2015, Prague/Czeck Republic

Session on the 26th General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). "Papers are invited that describe and address the potential effectiveness and scientific and technical problems associated with geoengineering. Possible examples include the potential for enhancement of carbon sinks, modeling studies of the climatic impacts of proposed schemes for altering the absorption of solar radiation; studies of unintended environmental consequences; and evaluations of technological feasibility issues."

Webinar: “Into the Great Wide Open? The Promise and Potential Perils of Climate Geoengineering”

20.03.2015, Webinar

"The purpose of this presentation will be to assess the potential benefits of climate geoengineering, as well as potential negative impacts. Moreover,  governance issues will be addressed, including pertinent international treaty regimes and the potential implications of overlapping jurisdiction, the contours of a potential framework for liability for potential negative impacts, and how to address potential moral hazard concerns associated with proceeding with a geoengineering research program or deployment of geoengineering technologies."

Seminar: Geoengineering as a Collective Experiment

14.04.2015, Boulder/USA

"Looking into the experimental systems of geoengineering, we can see the negotiation of what is known and unknown. In renegotiating such systems, we can approach a new mode of governance – collective experimentation."
