Cascio @ Climate Engineering Conference 2014 August 18-21, 2014
Potsdamer Platz, Berlin, Germany

In August, Jamais Cascio will be speaking in Berlin, Germany at the Climate Engineering Conference 2014. A major multi-day event, CEC2014 covers the gamut of climate engineering/geoengineering issues, from science to policy to media. He is on two panels, and then a special extra event.

Natural climate change is a well-understood driver of natural selection & evolution; it stands to reason, then, that human-driven climate change can be a driver of human-directed evolution. I’ll look at some of the implications of directed evolution as a tool for climate adaptation, and the parallels between climate engineering and biosystem engineering.
