Mirrors in space, ocean fertilisation, bio-char… can geoengineering technologies like these solve Earth’s climate crisis? Sometimes science can be stranger than fiction! Join Professor Tim Lenton in our 13th TalkScience event for a lively discussion about why scientists are considering technological solutions to climate change

Mirrors in space, ocean fertilisation, bio-char… can geoengineering technologies like these solve Earth’s climate crisis? Sometimes science can be stranger than fiction! Join Professor Tim Lenton in our 13th TalkScience event for a lively discussion about why scientists are considering technological solutions to climate change, what might work, and whether will ever know enough about Earth’s climate system to implement something with lasting consequences.

 

TalkScience@BL is a café scientifique style event where an expert provides a short yet provocative introduction, followed by a discussion amongst an informed audience.

These events are for researchers from academia and industry, policy makers, research funders, publishers and all those with a stake in science.


Topic: climate change, geoengineering, atmospheric chemistry, ocean chemistry, discussion, cafe scientifique Audience: students, academics, charities, government, policy, post graduate students, general public
