Event Details

The fight against climate change has had two fronts: the effort to transition away from polluting fossil fuels, and the effort to adapt to a changing climate to limit the impacts on people and ecosystems. New research suggests that a third way we could fight climate change would be to artificially cool the Earth, an idea known as climate intervention. In this lecture, Dr. Peter Irvine, a lecturer in climate science at UCL, will explain the science of climate intervention and the ethical issues this idea raises.

Dr. Irvine will explain how adding a reflective layer of dust to the upper atmosphere could cool the planet and reduce many climate risks. He will also discuss some of the difficult questions climate intervention raises, such as who’s hand would be on the global thermostat? At the end of the lecture there will be time for you to ask your questions about the science of climate intervention and the broader issues it raises.
