Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and SilverLining on Monday, December 10, 2018 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. for a discussion on interventions for ensuring safety against the risks of a warming climate, and considerations for the US research sector.

The recent US National Climate Assessment gave a dire warning about the near-term risks of a warming climate. Our distinguished panelists will discuss the future of research in atmospheric climate intervention (sometimes called “solar geoengineering”) in the United States, a new National Academy of Sciences effort to define a responsible research agenda and possible paths for governance.


Join us at the Rayburn House Office Building, room 2075, for what promises to be a lively and informative discussion. This event is on-the-record and open to the media. Light food and refreshments will be served.
