Talk Synopsis & Video Recording
The Arctic is “ground zero” for climate change, and it has been warming faster than the rest of the world. Our work is focused on evaluating the safety, practicality and effectiveness of engineering approaches to replace lost Arctic ice reflectivity, in collaboration with experts in climate modeling, marine biology, and the Arctic. Of equal importance to the technical work is building inclusive and appropriate collaborative frameworks for co-development, governance, and implementation of such climate interventions.
This work has potential to rebuild the Earth’s historic Arctic “heat shield”, interrupting the Ice-Albedo Feedback loop, and lessening the risks of an ice-free Arctic.
Breakout Group Discussions
What do you think about using geo-engineering for climate restoration? (e.g. You may want to discuss the logistical and ethical issues of human technological interventions)
