Seminar: Open seminar on negative emissions: Bridging societal and mitigation needs

02. Sept 2015, Tsukuba/Japan

"The main objectives of this half-day seminar of MaGNET(Management of NegativeEmission Technologies) are capacity building (e.g. at universities, research facilities) and  outreach to possible stakeholders both in terms of policymakers and in terms of those parts of industry that would implement NETs, especially BECCS (Bioenergy & CCS)."

Lecture: Why climate engineering and sustainable agriculture need to be part of the same conversation

21. September 2015, Washington, D.C./USA

Lectrue by Holly Jean Buck. "We’ll briefly review five major reasons why geoengineering and agriculture are inseparable discussions, explore the roots of why agroecology and geoengineering are often constructed as opposing forces, and brainstorm some ways forward through this thought problem."

Lecture: Moderate, Temporary, and Responsive Solar Geoengineering (David Keith)

25. September 2015, Boulder/USA

Lecture by David Keith. "I will review the science and technology and of solar geoengineering and argue that systematic management of climate risks entails the capability to implement these technologies. Finally, I will speculate about the elements of a geoengineering research program needed to build and regulate such capability."

Public discussion: The potential of bioenergy crops to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

30. September 2015, Oxford / UK

"To avoid dangerous climate change will require not only very steep cuts in emissions, but also the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Most of the models that avoid dangerous climate change do so by assuming that it will be possible to deploy a technique called biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (or BECCS for short) at a very large scale. But is this realistic? Please join us for a public discussion to explore this issue."
