This is the fourth presentation in our Science Literacy series at MIT. Prof. Cziczo provides an overview of the climate change issue and then a critique of geoengineering. He explains the options, and --more importantly—the misinformation that seems to accompany the solar radiation management option in particular. He lists the kinds of questions the public needs to ask in the effort to determine a policy for reducing the CO2 in the atmosphere that is rapidly warning the planet.

Daniel Cziczo is professor and head of the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University.
