John Deutch on Four Strategies to Address Climate Change and Reduce Damage: A Conceptual Model
Co-Sponsored by the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Harvard's Solar Geoengineering Research Program.
Join us to hear from John Deutch, Institute Professor Emeritus at MIT's Department of Chemistry, and former U.S. Director of Central Intelligence (1995-1996). Professor Deutch will discuss "Four Strategies to Address Climate Change and Reduce Damage: A Conceptual Model."
It is very unlikely that climate damages can be reduced to an acceptable level by the end of the century relying only on emissions reduction. A conceptual model is presented that includes four climate change control strategies: emissions reduction, carbon dioxide (CO2) removal from the atmosphere, adaptation to climate change, and geoengineering to optimally reduce climate damage subject to a control budget constraint.
As always, this event is free and open to the public; no RSVPs required. Buffet-style lunch will be served.
