Lecture: Into the Great Wide Open? The Potential Promise and Perils of Climate Geoengineering (Wil Burns)

3. December 2015, Madison/USA

"Recent analyses assert that by 2100, greenhouse gas reduction pledges made to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will still allow temperature increases of 2.7-3.5° C. This could have disastrous consequences for human institutions and natural ecosystems. As a result, increasing attention is being devoted to approaches once considered “forbidden territory.” This presentation will assess both potential benefits of climate geoengineering and possible negative impacts."

Lecture: Experiment Earth: Responsible innovation in geoengineering (Jack Stilgoe)

14. December 2015, London/UK

"Experiments in geoengineering – intentionally manipulating the Earth’s climate to reduce global warming – have become the focus of a vital debate about responsible science and innovation. This talk by Dr Jack Stilgoe, Lecturer in Science and Technology Studies at University College London, brings the audience up to date with this debate."

Lecture: Tidal Pumping for Large Scale Ocean Based Algae Production (Robert Tulip)

17. December 2015, Brisbane/Australia

"Innovative technology suited for rapid deployment could help prevent dangerous warming and acidification, using methods that if scaled up globally could remove more carbon from the air and sea than total emissions.  Large scale ocean based algae production can use carbon dioxide as a useful commodity input.  Carbon can be mined to make fuel, food, feed, fabric, fertilizer, bitumen, construction material and other goods.  Algae farming can protect and enhance biodiversity while providing sustainability at scale, utilising the space, energy and resources of the world oceans, to make carbon capture and storage a profitable industry instead of a cost.
