About the Lecture:

Geoengineering is a radical and controversial proposed solution to the problem of human-induced climate change involving the intersection of science, engineering, environmental ethics, governance, policy, and law. The College of the Environment is at the forefront of discussions on geoengineering. Professors Rayner and Keith will examine the feasibility of proposed geoengineering schemes, explain the need for more research, and discuss some of the critical aspects of how this research should be monitored. They will examine geoengineering not only as engineering but also will explore the complex sociopolitical implications of potential geoengineering activities that humankind will face in critically weighing its advantages and disadvantages.
