The Center for Ethics and Human Values presents a Technology COMPAS Conference on Geoengineering
Can we use technology to mitigate the harms of climate change? What are the moral implications of altering large scale systems that we don’t completely understand? Does anyone have the political jurisdiction to make decisions about actions that might affect everyone on Earth?
This is the second of four COMPAS conferences that will explore the relationships between technology and human flourishing.
