High Leverage Geoengineering in an Uncertain World

Thursday, September 30, 2010 - 9:15pm

A subject as broad as geo-engineering requires an interdisciplinary approach, which is made even more urgent by the fact that, so far, the conversation around geo-engineering has been largely restricted to a small subset of natural scientists and engineers. This 1.5-day workshop will facilitate a conversation between scientists who are working on deployment technology, climate modeling, and other aspects of the problem and ethicists, social scientists, legal and political theorists, and diplomatic representatives (from the U.S., China, India, and small island states) whose insights are urgently needed.

Organizer:  Douglas Kysar, Yale Law School
