The Morality and Policy of Negative Emissions for Climate Change Mitigation

17th May 2018, 11.00am - 6.00pm and 18th May 2018, 10.15am - 4.00pm

The international community has committed itself to limiting global warming to well below 2ᴼC, possibly as low as 1.5ᴼC. But the vast majority of the scenarios that forecast how that might be done require the use of carbon dioxide removal technology. That technology has not yet been developed to a sufficient extent, and there might be bio-physical and economic limits to deployment on the scale forecasted. Alternatives would seem to include only 1) very deep emissions reductions, perhaps requiring economic austerity, risking global recession, and constraining poverty eradication projects in the developing world, 2) exceeding the 2ᴼC warming limit, or 3) the use of solar radiation management, which also remains underdeveloped. Should limiting warming to well below 2ᴼC with the aid of carbon dioxide removal technology be the primary focus of mitigation policy or should policy be redirected towards one of the alternatives? How should trade-offs be evaluated? What moral considerations should guide decision-making?
