Workshop: Carbon Dioxide Removal/Negative Emissions Technologies (FCEA)

8. February 2017, Berkeley / USA

"The Center for Science, Technology, Medicine & Society is hosting a February workshop on negative emissions technologies with The Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment and co-sponsor ASU LightWorks, Global Institute of Sustainability, Arizona State University. The purpose of this workshop will be to provide an introduction to CDR/NETs approaches. The primary objective will be to help non-governmental organizations in the environmental, food, land-use and forestry sectors develop positions on such technologies as they increasingly become part of the climate policy debate. The workshop will include a series of presentations on these technologies, as well as ample time for questions and discussion. It will culminate in a group scenario exercise."

Panel Discussion: Launch of Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Initiative (C2G2)

16. February 2017, New York / USA

Webcast available. "This initiative comes at a very timely moment and addresses a critical gap in the world's response to climate change.The Initiative does not promote geoengineering, nor is it intrinsically against it. However, it assumes that given the state of international response to climate change so far, these technologies are likely to be used in the foreseeable future. There is a considerable lack of understanding of the governance requirements of geoengineering, which the C2G2 Initiative will address during the coming years."

Lecture: CSTPR seminar: Addressing climate change as an engineering challenge: Scientific expertise in U.S.

22. February 2017, Boulder / USA

"This talk examines the specific role of quantified expertise (in form of climate models and numeric indicators) for political decision-making on Geoengineering technologies in the U.S. A corpus of analysis, comprising all official documentation of U.S. American state affairs regarding Geoengineering technologies (1990 – 2015) serves as the database."
