Geo-engineering: How real & how immediate?

Thursday, March 14

09:00 am - 10:00 am

Solar Radiation Management or Solar Geoengineering techniques aim to reflect a small proportion of the Sun’s energy back into space, counteracting the temperature rise caused by increased levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. What is the cost and technical feasibility of these technologies? What are the political, ethical, legal issues? What are the risks of these approaches? What will be some of the potential deployment strategies?
