Soup and Sandwich Seminar - Dr. Anna Versluis, Geography Department: Geo-engineering: Can we engineer our way out of climate change? Melva Lind Interpretive Center

 In the search for solutions to climate change concerns, Geo-engineering (also called "climate engineering”) has recently emerged as a potential solution (seeding the oceans with iron, for example).  Following a brief background on earth systems and climate change, we'll talk about various proposals for geo-engineered solutions to climate change challenges, and look at what modern scholars are saying about the wisdom (or folly) of attempting such geo-engineering remedies.
