Presentation: Climate Geoengineering Governance

Friday, Nov 16, 4 pm

Special presentation by Steve Rayner (James Martin Professor of Science and Civilization at the Saïd Business School and Director of the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society, Oxford University). He describes himself as an “undisciplined” scholar lending a social science perspective to  major matters of science and technology. He was listed by Wired Magazine on the 2008 smart list as one of the 15 people the next President should listen to.   Listen to him in the Auditorium.

Neues Deutschland: »Wer schnell etwas machen will, trifft auf meinen Argwohn«

DE "Chemie-Nobelpreisträger Paul J. Crutzen über Geo-Engineering als Notbremse bei der Klimaerwärmung. - 2006 produzierte Paul J. Crutzen Science Fiction im buchstäblichen Sinn. Der niederländische Wissenschaftler schlug vor, Sulfatpartikel in die Stratosphäre zu befördern, um die Sonneneinstrahlung auf die Erde zu dämpfen und so die Temperatur um 0,5 Grad Celsius zu senken. Seitdem wird verstärkt Maßnahmen des »Geo-Engineerings« diskutiert – dabei geht es um Strategien, die Erderwärmung durch technische Innovationen einzuschränken oder aufzuhalten. Kürzlich hielt Crutzen den Eröffnungsvortrag auf einem Symposium über die »Grenzen menschlichen Eingreifens in die Natur« in Hamburg. Folke Havekost sprach mit ihm."

EN "Paul J. Crutzen, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry on geoengineering as an emergency brake on global warming. - 2006 Paul J. Crutzen produced science fiction in the literal sense. The Dutch scientists proposed to transport sulfate particles into the stratosphere to absorb the solar radiation on the earth and thus to reduce the temperature by 0.5 degrees Celsius. Since then more measures of "geoengineering" is being discussed - this is about strategies to reduce global warming through technological innovations or arrest. Crutzen recently gave the opening lecture at a symposium about the "limits of human intervention in nature 'in Hamburg. Folke Havekost spoke with him."

Burns, William C. G. (2011): Climate Geoengineering: Solar Radiation Management and its Implications for Intergenerational Equity

Burns, William C. G. (2011): Climate Geoengineering: Solar Radiation Management and its Implications for Intergenerational Equity. In: Stanford Journal of Law, Science & Policy 4 (May 10), pp. 39–55.

"This article examines the implications of Solar Radiation Management climate geoengineering for intergenerational equity. It argues that under all but the most stringent circumstances, solar radiation management approaches would violate the internationally legally recognized principle of intergenerational equity."
