Wednesday, Apr. 16, 2014

On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its Working Group 3, “Mitigation of Climate Change,” report, as part of its 5th Assessment of climate change science.  That report can be found here.

As part of a Washington Geoengineering Consortium (WGC) event to assess this report the day of its release, Wil Burns, Director, MS Program in Energy and Climate at Johns Hopkins University and WGC co-founder, presented his assessment of the inclusion of climate geoengineering in all three working groups of the IPCC AR5.

Listen to that presentation below.

A written analysis of AR5’s relevance to the climate geoengineering discussion is forthcoming, along with video of the panel discussion from the event.
