HUCE Seminar Room 440, 26 Oxford St., Cambridge

Solar Geoengineering Seminar

Katherine Ricke, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, will present "A Solar Geoengineering and Global Income Inequality Paradox."

Exploring heterogeneity in the economic impacts of solar geoengineering is a fundamental step towards understanding the risk tradeoff associated with a geoengineering option. To evaluate the impacts of solar geoengineering and greenhouse gas-driven climate change on equal terms, we apply macroeconomic impact models that have been widely applied to climate change impacts assessment. Consistent reduction in inter-country inequality can inform discussions of the distribution of impacts of solar geoengineering, a topic of concern in geoengineering ethics and governance debates.

Lunch is provided with RSVP to acchang@seas.harvard.edu.
