  • September 14, 2017: Public Lecture and Discussion forum, 5:30pm, Mechanical Engineering Hall Auditorium 1106: “Searching for Answers on a Warming Planet: Why We May Need Climate Engineering” by Simon Nicholson, American University, School of International Service & Co-Director, Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment

    Overview: Artificially whitening clouds. Injecting reflective particles into the stratosphere. Seeding the oceans with iron. These and a range of other climate engineering or "geoengineering" schemes are gaining increasing visibility and credibility as options for tackling climate change. What, though, is to be made of such efforts? Is climate engineering a new form of hucksterism? A dangerous and distracting folly? Or some meaningful part of the toolkit to generate a sustainable
    future?

    Moderator:   Paul Robbins, Nelson Institute
    Discussants:
    Dominique Brossard, UW-Madison
                         
    Elisabeth Graffy, Arizona State University
