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

2. October 2015, London/UK

" I will review the science and technology  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."

Lecture: Is it permissible to research solar radiation management?

08. October 2015, School for International Service at American University, Washington, D.C./USA

Talk by David Morrow. "The most pressing question in the governance of solar radiation management (SRM) is what kind(s) of research, if any, ought to be pursued and under what conditions. We can make progress on that question by thinking through some of the major arguments against doing SRM research at all."

Presentation on the ECS Meeting: Wealth, Global Warming and Geoengineering

12. October 2015, Phoenix/USA

"It would be prudent for the media publicize the relationship between global wealth and global warming and for people and governments to consider risk-involving technologies that could actually mitigate global warming, if only as a last-ditch means of preventing a catastrophe."

Lecture: Wealth, Global Warming and Geoengineering

12.10.2015, Phoenix/USA

"So far the environmental movements considered the risks associated with these options greater than the risks of the effects of warming resulting of people’s quest for wealth and large families. As an example, the environmental movements successfully applied to the iron fertilization of Southern Oceans rules of the London Convention on the Prevention of Marine Pollution by Dumping of Wastes and Other Matter."

Lectures: Future of Climate Engineering. Is Science Ready to Turn Down the Heat

21. October 2015, Seattle/USA

"Our evening begins with an introduction to the science of climate change and the current state of the world's climate by prominent researcher Dennis Hartmann. Internationally renowned scientists David Keith and Thomas Ackerman follow to explain and contrast the two approaches to SRM. The evening concludes with a Q&A session moderated by Roel Hammerschlag, engaging our presenters and audience members in an exploration of the science, technology and ethics of SRM."

Lectures: Geo-Engineering: Our Plan B if Paris 2015 Fails?

27. October 2015, Montreal/Canada

"Speakers will cover main techniques currently being considered to control the planet’s climate, various methods grouped under the term “geoengineering”, as well as top research topics in the field. Speakers will also examine how these technologies can be linked to the United Nations’ climate change negotiations (COP21) to be held in Paris in December."
