Sustain What? Beyond the Heat Around a Sun-Blocking Cooling Strategy

March 26, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join the Earth Institute’s Andy Revkin, who’s covered climate change since the 1980s, with a high-level panel to strip away sound bites around solar geoengineering – the decades-old idea of adding a veil of sun-blocking particles high in the atmosphere to slow global warming driven by accumulating greenhouse gases.

The focus is the latest report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering & Medicine. The report will be released at noon Eastern on Thursday March 25. Register for a live briefing here:

Guests Friday include:

- Chris Field, report committee co-chairman and director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment

- Michael Gerrard, Columbia law professor and co-editor of a book on climate engineering law

- Holly Jean Buck, an assistant professor at the University at Buffalo, author and expert on “stopgap” environmental interventions

- David Keith, the Harvard researcher leading a research project preparing for an initial small-scale test of one sun-blocking technology

- Marissa Saenger, a research fellow in Keith’s lab and a member of the Bay Area chapter of the Sunrise Movement.
