Climate Science on Tap: What is Climate Engineering and Should it be Field Tested?
WhenThursday, Nov. 2, 2017, 7 – 8 p.m.
WhereNaked City Brewing, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N, Seattle, WA

Will the world act on climate change fast enough? If not, some propose that we consider geoengineering - the deliberate large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment. To explore the risks and feasibility of geoengineering, both Harvard University and the University of Washington have proposed testing geoengineering by putting aerosols in the stratosphere or tweaking the brightness of clouds. This Climate Science on Tap will explore geoengineering, and the scientific, political and ethical questions around geoengineering tests.

Join us for insightful presentations and a lively panel discussion with:

  • Philosopher Stephen Gardiner, University of Washington
  • Atmospheric scientist Thomas Ackerman, Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean
  • Political scientist Sikina Jinnah, UC Santa Cruz
  • Ethicist Christopher Preston, University of Montana
Doors open at 6:00 pm for ticketholders. Trivia game begins at 6:30 pm. Panel presentation starts at 7:00 pm. Arrive early! Ticket holders are only guaranteed admission until 7:00 PM, at which time any open seats will be made available on a first come first served basis.
