Climate Change and Technological Responses: A Conversation with Oliver Morton on Recent Developments

November 16, 2022 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Join Oliver Morton, senior editor at The Economist, in conversation with Professor Ted Parson about recent developments in efforts to employ technology to reduce the risks of climate change. Global temperatures are on track to exceed the targets adopted in the Paris Agreement, and the world’s efforts to keep to within those limits remain anemic. Hear from two leading experts on potential responses, including recent initiatives to assess the prospect of solar geoengineering and carbon dioxide removal technologies.

Oliver Morton is a senior editor at The Economist who in his own writing concentrates on scientific and technological change and their effects. He is the author of four acclaimed books on the history, understanding and imagining of planetary processes: Mapping Mars: Science, Imagination and the Birth of a World (2002); Eating the Sun: How Plants Power the Planet (2007); The Planet Remade: How Geoengineering Could Change the World (2015); and The Moon: A History for the Future (2019). Asteroid 10716 Olivermorton is named after him.

Ted Parson is the Dan and Rae Emmett Professor of Environmental Law and Faculty Director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA Law.

Lunch to be provided with RSVP.
