Undergraduate Seminar: Climate Engineering

EAS-E 490 — Fall 2020 — Themester

Course Description

Climate change is real, and we’re not moving fast enough to stop it. To prevent the worst effects of climate change, people are talking about climate engineering: temporarily and deliberately modifying the climate. Why are people talking about this? How would it work?

Who gets a say in how it’s done? What might happen? Will there be climate winners and losers? How does science fit into the overall debate about whether and how it might be done?
