AAAS Panels to Discuss the Outlook for Geoengineering
The AAAS Center for Science, Technology, and Sustainability will host a discussion Tuesday, April 20, on research and policy questions surrounding geoengineering, the deliberate tinkering with the atmosphere to reduce the impact of global warming.
About 175 scientists from 14 nations met recently at the Asilomar conference center in California to discuss potential voluntary rules to govern research on geeoengineering, once considered fringe science but now receiving more attention.
Seating is limited. Members of the public should RSVP email@example.com.
Reporters planning to attend should RSVP to Earl Lane, 202-326-6431, firstname.lastname@example.org.
