All sessions at one glance:


Solar Geoengineering – Why we must dim the sun before entering the post-fossil age with ECDF Associated Member Thomas Ramge

Topic: Humanity is not decarbonizing decisively enough. In a few decades from now, we will likely live on a planet with 2 degrees of global warming. Without solar geoengineering, billions of people will suffer unbearable consequences. Reflecting sunlight into space will be our best option to gain time.

Where: Stage 10
