Debate: Geo-engineering with Dr. Eleftheria Vasileiadou & Drs. Ir. Monique Riphagen (Rathenau Institute)

In 1 on 25 maart 2013 at 20:20

Could we control global warming by technical intervention in the climate system? In this debate we discuss if geo-engineering can be a real solution to the climate problem. We investigate the different techniques, the pro’s and con’s and what the implications will be for society.

Eleftheria Vasileiadou
Assistant professor in Science, Technology and Public Policy at the Institute for Environmental Studies at the VU Amsterdam. She is currently involved in a project on how post-normal science can be governed, using the example of geo-engineering.

Monique Riphagen:
Researcher at the Rathenau Institute, which studies the different types of geo-engineering and wants to define the key issues that will be important in the social debate.
