Geoengineering - a future LWEC activity?
Living with Environmental Change partners have been considering the need for research activity in geoengineering. Geoengineering is defined as :
'the deliberate large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climate system in order to moderate global warming”
- Carbon Dioxide Removal
- Solar Radiation Management techniques
- Techniques for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
- Low carbon energy sources.
- Conventional power/industrial plant carbon capture and storage.
A report from a partners workshop on 20th May 2011 is now available to read together with presentations that were made at the event.
Public reactions to one aspect of geoengineering are captured in a report on Planet Earth online.
