David Keith, Harvard University
Alan Robock, Rutgers University

Moderated By:
Oliver Morton, The Economist

Solar geoengineering is a theoretical proposal for slowing down global warming by reflecting away a small percentage of incoming sunlight. A growing number of experts are researching geoengineering in an effort to understand its potential for reducing the risks of climate change, and the significant social and physical risks of this technology. This public debate will bring together four eminent experts in the field to discuss the science of solar geoengineering, its potential risks and benefits, and what a sensible path forward might look like.
