Cover to Cover: Special Offer for WACH Members

Join us for WACA’s March Cover to Cover conference call with Harvard Professor David Keith on his book A Case for Climate Engineering. The call will take place on Tuesday, March 11, at 2:00 PM ET.

Climate engineering–which could slow the pace of global warming by injecting reflective particles into the upper atmosphere–has emerged in recent years as an extremely controversial technology. A leading scientist long concerned about climate change, David Keith offers no naíve proposal for an easy fix and argues that after decades during which very little progress has been made in reducing carbon emissions, we must put climate engineering on the table and consider it responsibly. The book provides a clear and accessible overview of the costs and risks, and how climate engineering might fit into a larger program for managing climate change.
David Keith has worked at the interface of climate science, energy technology, and public policy for 25 years. He won first prize in Canada’s national physics exam, won MIT’s prize for excellence in experimental physics, and was named one of TIME magazine’s Heroes of the Environment 2009. David Keith is the Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and Professor of Public Policy in the Harvard Kennedy School. In Calgary, Canada he helps lead Carbon Engineering, a company developing technology to capture CO2 from ambient air.
