The 2015 Paris Agreement promotes low-carbon energy transitions and strategies that foster adaptation and resilience but assumes the likely implementation of "climate engineering" -- actions that aim to alter the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth’s surface and/or remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
This panel of humanists and social scientists will explore the ethics of climate engineering through multiple lenses: legal, public policy, theological, and cultural.
Light refreshments will be served.
4:30 - 5:45 p.m.
