The Need for Carbon Dioxide Removal
Reductions in CO2 emissions alone will slow down the rate of global warming but cannot stop it or reverse it. The only way to restore the climate is to actually remove CO2 from the atmosphere. Dr. Wadhams will discuss the various ways that are being investigated to accomplish this.
Dr. Peter Wadhams is a professor of Ocean Physics, and Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. He is the UK’s most experienced sea ice scientist, with 40 years of research in sea ice and ocean processes in the Arctic and the Antarctic. He is involved in research sponsored by the EU and by the US Office of Naval Research on the rapid sea ice retreat in the Arctic, and the implications of sea ice disappearance for the global climate.
