Webinar: Climate Justice: Examining Recent Developments

10. March 2017, webinar

"This seminar will begin with discussions of recent atmospheric trust litigation in the U.S., and the Urgenda case in the Netherlands, as examples of the advantages and limitations of using domestic courts to promote climate justice objectives. It will then address topics outside the litigation context by exploring the climate justice implications of the new differentiation model between developed and developing nations as reflected in the Paris Agreement and the human rights dimensions of global deployment of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS).

Lecture: Climate Engineering: A last straw to clutch, a Pandora’s box, or both?

17. March 2017, Halifax / Canada

"From there, I will continue argue for the importance of situating ourselves historically, and of understanding our own biases and privileges. Aiming at stimulating debate and reflection on this matter rather than outlining a single position, this talk is aimed at introducing a wide range of considerations about the desirability (or necessity) of climate engineering. Whether or not we should engineer the climate is still an open question. The answer cannot and should not be simple."
