Headline: Climate Engineering Conference 2014: Critical Global Discussions

Climate engineering is rapidly becoming a contentious issue within political, scientific, and cultural discussions of climate change, in part due to a perceived lack of progress on crucial emission reductions. We see a window of opportunity for bringing together the research, policy, and civic communities under one roof to discuss the highly complex and interlinked ethical, social and technical issues that come into focus when discussing climate engineering. We thus strive to engage in critical global discussions by bringing in new voices, providing a forum for exchange and dialogue, and examining how climate engineering intersects with other issues and broader trends by organizing a large conference from August 18-21, 2014, in Berlin, Germany.
