The Climate Engineering Conference 2017 provides a platform for critical global discussions by bringing together researchers, policymakers, and civil society actors to discuss the highly complex and interlinked ethical, social and technical issues related to climate engineering. Watch the press briefing (10 October 2017) with David Keith, Professor of Applied Physics and Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University, Mark Lawrence, Scientific Director at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), Lili Fuhr, Head of the Ecology and Sustainable Development Department at the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Pablo Suarez, Associate Director for Research and Innovation at the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre.
Risks, Unknowns, and Challenges
For now, the field of climate engineering consists of desk and laboratory studies and small-scale field research on some of the proposed methods. No technologies have been deployed at a scale that impacts the global climate. Yet, the intent behind climate engineering, its geographically large or even global impact, and the complexity and uncertainty of its potential effects upon climate governance – and human society – raise profound questions.
On a basic level, there are technical questions about the costs and feasibility of development and deployment of various technologies, as well as the geophysical processes that they aim to manipulate. Given our imperfect knowledge of both the technologies and the climate system, there are worries about unintended environmental and ecosystem side effects. Even if the technologies function as intended, they will not “turn back the clock” from a climate influenced by rising greenhouse gas emissions to a previous climate – an engineered climate will be a new and different one.
