It’s an intimidating term, but it could be the high-tech solution to reversing the worst effects of climate change. Geoengineering proposes to combat warming by reflecting a fraction of incoming sunlight back to space.
It’s the topic today at The Forum on U.S. Solar Geoengineering Research, hosted by Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program and Cassidy Vice President Janie Wise Thompson is a featured panelist.
Janie will be discussing the policy realities in Washington of expanding U.S. federal research into the technology options, potential environmental effects, and future governance needs. She served at the Department of Energy before joining Cassidy and earlier served on the staff of the House Committee on Science and Technology.
