Our guest in this Science Forum is economist Scott Barrett of Columbia University’s Earth Institute. Chat with Barrett about the science and politics of geoengineering, the emerging field of science aimed at cooling the planet.
Barrett is an expert on international environmental agreements. He is currently studying the politics and economics of geoengineering. He says countries are more likely to geoengineer climate than reduce their carbon emissions. Read his paper on The Incredible Economics of Geoengineering.
Barrett is the author of Environment and Statecraft: The Strategy of Environmental Treaty-Making. (Here’s a review of the book.) Barrett also blogs for Yale Global Online.
