Savannah, Ga. – Are there any strategies available to manage or mitigate climate change? That question will be the focus of the next virtual Evening @ Skidaway program. University of Georgia Skidaway Institute of Oceanography researcher Dan Ohnemus will present a talk, “A Look at Climate Mitigation Solutions: Ideas for the Century Ahead,” via YouTube on Tuesday, April 13, at 7 p.m.
“As scientists we spend a lot of time studying the changes associated with global climate change and trying to constrain their uncertainties -- including warming, ocean acidification, ecological effects and coastal impacts,” Ohnemus said. “In this talk I'll explore a different side -- potential mitigation and intervention strategies.”
Ohnemus will examine some strategies that are comparatively simple, like carbon markets, and others that are more complex or even outlandish-sounding, like solar radiation management and addition of rocks to the oceans.
