Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program

https://geoengineering.environment.harvard.edu/

Overarching goals

Produce research that advances solar geoengineering’s science and technology frontier, publishing high-impact papers, and disseminating ideas that are taken up by other researchers and government research programs.

Take an active stance on research with a unique mandate to develop new path-breaking technologies that might improve solar geoengineering’s effectiveness and reduce its risks.

Employ Harvard’s convening power to bring together scientists, environmental leaders, and government officials to discuss the technology and its governance.

Advance science and technology, assess efficacy and risks, and lay out governance options and social implications.

Harvard Speaks on Climate Change

Harvard Speaks on Climate Change: Daniel Schrag Intro Video

HARVARD SPEAKS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate change is one of the most complicated and challenging problems the world has ever faced.

It is a global problem, and one that requires global action to manage the impacts and minimize the risks. Here at Harvard, we are fortunate enough to have faculty members with expertise, across many disciplines, who contribute through their teaching, their research, and their leadership to a broad effort to help lead the world toward solutions.

Harvard Speaks on Climate Change is an initiative of the Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE) to share the varied perspectives of Harvard’s faculty beyond the walls of the University. In the videos in this series, you will see faculty from across our campus discussing the many dimensions of the climate challenge: from law, business, and public policy, to public health, design, the sciences and engineering, and the humanities. Each video will lead you to an individual faculty page with more resources for those who want to dig deeper: additional videos from that faculty member, a selection of their publications, as well as faculty bios and links to their webpages. The videos are also catalogued so that users can browse by faculty, topic or category.

Our hope is that these videos will give viewers a better appreciation of the nature of the climate challenge, and offer insights to different pathways for the future.

Geoengineering (SRM): Unethical, Unwanted, Unregulated

This video is a straight-forward explanation of the reality of what we call chemtrails, and what those carrying out these projects call “geoengineering” and “solar radiation management”.

This video uses ONLY clips from peer-reviewed, scientifically accredited universities and organizations.

All sources are cited in the credits at the end, as well as in the video description below.

This video might not fly for long here on Youtube with the news clips tacked on to the end of the video (©opyright hounds) – but we’ll see. If that’s the case, I’ll reupload it and trim off the news clip portion of the video. Please feel free to download & reupload/trim it as you see fit.

Wanna hear a funny phrase? “Chemtrail citations”.

^^^Just as we conspiritards suspected, there’s a nanotech option for Solar Radiation Management that comes in the form of dust/metallic particles (similar to “smart dust”).

Highlight Seminar: David Keith, Harvard University – “Reducing the Risks of Solar Geoengineering”


AndlingerCenter

Published on May 24, 2016

Professor David Keith, of Harvard University, will speak on the topic of “Reducing the Risks of Solar Geoengineering” as part of the 2015-2016 Highlight Seminar Series.

ABSTRACT
I will discuss new results suggesting it may be possible to implement solar geoengineering using stratospheric aerosols without ozone loss while significantly reducing some other important side effects. Estimates of the risks and efficacy of solar geoengineering are deeply uncertain. Accurate physically-based models along with laboratory and in situ experiments will be needed to improve estimates of the performance of proposal solar geoengineering. As an example, I will discuss our ongoing laboratory experiments and plans for small perturbative outdoor experiments. Governance poses the greatest challenge for solar geoengineering: I will review some recent work on governance of research and deployment of solar geoengineering, and argue in favor of a U.S. government commitment to an interdisciplinary and international research program.

BIO
David Keith has worked near the interface between climate science, energy technology, and public policy for twenty five years. He took first prize in Canada’s national physics prize exam, won MIT’s prize for excellence in experimental physics, and was one of TIME magazine’s Heroes of the Environment 2009. David divides his time between Cambridge where he is Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Professor of Public Policy in the Harvard Kennedy School; and Calgary, where he helps lead Carbon Engineering a company developing technology to the capture of CO2 from ambient air.
