The Governance of Solar Geoengineering: A Book Talk with Jesse Reynolds, UCLA Law
November 12, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
At an Emmett Institute book talk on November 12, 2019, Jesse Reynolds, Emmett/Frankel Fellow in Environmental Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, will discuss findings from his new book, The Governance of Solar Geoengineering: Managing Climate Change in the Anthropocene, as from more recent work.
Location: Law 1447
Climate change is among the world’s most important problems, and the responses of emission cuts and adapting to new climates remain elusive. One set of proposals receiving increasing attention among scientists and policymakers is “solar geoengineering,” which would reflect a small portion of incoming sunlight to reduce climate change. Evidence indicates that this could be effective, inexpensive, and technologically feasible, but it poses serious environmental risks and social challenges. Governance will thus be crucial.
