Tinkering With the Temperature of Planet Earth

Students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA, have been deliberating about the implications for society of cloud whitening technology – a form of geoengineering – to cool global temperature as a means to combat climate change.

Using publicly available information, they have discussed their concerns face-to-face, online with real world experts, and then together again to develop their consensus opinion.

They have prepared written testimonies and are ready to share their views with the members of Congress... and you.

Join them on October 19, 2010 from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
