Climate Engineering Conference 2014: Critical Global Discussions (6min)

Due to the limited success of efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, climate engineering (CE) has been increasingly studied in recent years. Often defined as intentional, large-scale interventions into the global climate to counteract some of the effects of climate change, climate engineering techniques continue to be the subject of contentious debate in different in political, scientific and cultural fora.

The IASS and its partners hosted the first large international conference on climate engineering – Climate Engineering Conference 2014: Critical Global Discussions – in Berlin from 18 to 21 August 2014. This event brought together more than 300 academics, policy-makers and representatives of civil society from 40 countries for a critical yet productive exchange.
