Climate intervention is no substitute for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions and adaptation efforts aimed at reducing the negative consequences of climate change. However, as our planet enters a period of changing climate never before experienced in recorded human history, interest is growing in the potential for deliberate intervention in the climate system to counter climate change. This webinar will focus on approaches to climate intervention within the context of the findings of two Academies' reports released in February 2015 on the potential impacts, benefits, and costs of two approaches to climate intervention: carbon dioxide removal and sequestration, and reflecting sunlight to cool the earth.
