Lecture: How do Civil Society Organizations react to Climate Engineering proposals?

27. June 2019, Klagenfurt / AUT

"Einladung zum Vortrag "How do Civil Society Organizations react to Climate Engineering proposals?"Lecturer: Felix Wittstock (Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung (UFZ) Leipzig); when: Thursday, June 27th 2019, 17:15-18:45; where: STS-Besprechungsraum (B07.1.207, Lakeside Park Haus B07/b)

There are two common responses to anthropogenic climate change: mitigation (e.g. reducing CO2-emissions) and adaptation. In recent years, proposals of ‘climate engineering’ (CE) have attracted attention as a possible third response. From the outset, such ideas of deliberate, large-scale interventions into the climate system did not only spark research activities but also scientific and public controversy.  The presentation draws on my PhD research within the DFG-funded project CE-Scipol2 and will explore how civil society organizations react to CE proposals. Exploratory qualitative research shows an ambivalent relationship between NGOs and science as well as tensions between ‘eco-modernist’ and ‘climate justice’ approaches - https://xkcd.com/285/"

Talk: Stratospheric Sulfur Geoengineering – Benefits and Risks by Alan Robock

11. July 2019, Boulder, Colorado / USA

"Geoengineering, also called climate engineering or climate intervention, has been proposed as a “solution” to global warming, involving “solar radiation management” by injecting particles into the stratosphere, brightening clouds, or blocking sunlight with satellites between the Sun and Earth. [...] No such systems to conduct stratospheric geoengineering now exist, but the least expensive option would probably be to invent airplanes that could put sulfur gases into the stratosphere.  Nevertheless, it may be very difficult to create stratospheric sulfate particles with a desirable size distribution."

Summer School: Geoengineering the Climate: Impacts and the Developing World

12. - 16. August 2019, Beijing / CHN

"Solar Radiation Management (SRM) is the most radical, controversial, and rapidly acting form of geoengineering. SRM is a set of proposals to reduce the impacts of climate change by means such as sulfate aerosol injection or marine cloud brightening. This school will focus on interpreting and analysing computer simulation of SRM from the international Geoengineering Intercomparison project (GeoMIP) Geoengineering Large Ensemble of Simulations (GLENS) using the CESM+WACCM model. [...] Apply before March 30 by sending a 300 word explanation of your motivation for attending, and current CV. Also indicate if and how much travel support is needed.  For further information and applications please contact John Moore john.moore.bnu (at) gmail.com."
