"Controlling the Global Thermostat" Engineering Our Way Out of a Climate Catastrophe

Speaker: Daniel Schrag,Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Harvard University
Discussant: Dale Jamieson, Environmental Studies Program, New York University
Location: Princeton University
Date: Mar 3, 2009

Professor Daniel Schrag studies climate and climate change over the broadest range of Earth history. He has examined changes in ocean circulation over the last several decades, with particular attention to El Niño and the tropical Pacific. He has worked on theories for Pleistocene ice-age cycles including a better determination of ocean temperatures during the Last Glacial Maximum, 20,000 years ago.

Dan also helped develop the Snowball Earth hypothesis, proposing that a series of global glaciations occurred between 750 and 580 million years ago that may have led to the evolution of multicellular animals. Currently he is working with economists and engineers on technological approaches to mitigating future climate change.
