Lecture: Going Rogue: Russ George and the Problem of Governance in Geoengineering

Presentation at the ISA Forum of Sociology. "In this paper I review the evidence on how the world has dealt – or, more exactly, failed to deal  -- with Russ George.  I then ask:  What can we learn from the failure to control him about the problem of governance if the world’s nations at some point start think that geoengineering is the only option left to them?"

Lecture: Wealth, Global Warming and Geoengineering

22. March 2016, Austin/USA

With Adam Heller. "The press has done well in telling the public that CO2 emissions and global warming are associated. Many political leaders are committed to reducing CO2 emissions to mitigate global warming through policies and subsidies encouraging energy efficiency and use of renewable energy.
