The prospect of using space-based technologies to reduce the amount of incoming sunlight and moderate climate change has long been on the margins of discussions about solar geoengineering. Recent and forecast technological and commercial developments, however, promise to bring space-based geoengineering closer to center stage.
Join us for an Energy Policy Seminar featuring Pete Worden, Executive Director of Breakthrough Starshot, and Oliver Morton, Briefings Editor at The Economist, who will assess the future viability of space-based geoengineering techniques and explore the legal, political, and governance challenges likely to arise. Harvard Business School Professor Matthew Weinzierl will moderate the discussion.
Sponsors: This week's Energy Policy Seminar is co-sponsored by Harvard's Solar Geoengineering Research Program, a joint project of the Harvard University Center for the Environment and the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government.
Attendance: This event is free and open to the public. For those who cannot attend live, the seminar will be recorded and available to watch on this page.
