[10:45am] The Time for Geo-engineering is NOW!
Description:
The Time for Geo-engineering is NOW! by Charlie Brucker, Physics Hobbiest and Educator Sunday, June 18, at 10:45 am Webster Presbyterian Church 550 Webster Rd, Webster, NY 14580 Wednesday, June 21 at 7:30 pm Mountain Rise United Church of Christ 2 Mountain Rise, Fairport, NY 14450 Free and open to the public Questions? Contact Sue Pixley susanbpixley@gmail.com 585-425-1414 The Rochester area welcomes Charlie Brucker, PhD in Engineering Physics and HS Math/Computer Science teacher, who's current passion is climate science, in particular Geo-engineering to cool the planet, to share his work and lead discussions on Sunday morning, June 18 and Wednesday evening, June 21. In his talks he will discuss how we have unwittingly overwhelmed nature's ability to absorb the amount of CO2 emissions created by our global carbon footprint and the technology that exists today to quickly (~40 years!) counter rising temperature, restore Arctic sea ice, and minimize the consequences of global warming. All are welcome to come and hear a fascinating and hopeful discussion on climate change! Charlie Brucker has a PhD in Engineering Physics from Cornell University, 1977. He worked in information storage and retrieval at Xerox, Kodak, and Seagate for 27 years. For the last 11 years, he has been teaching Math and Computer Science at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, CA. Abstract from Charlie: The United States has “achieved” by far the highest energy consumption per capita of any populous developed nation, currently about 17 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per person per year. Worldwide, the average carbon footprint is about four tons per person per year and rising. Unwittingly, humans have shocked our atmosphere with infrared heat-absorbing CO2 and triggered a rise in sea level, currently about 3.5 mm per year and accelerating. We have completely overwhelmed nature’s ability to absorb CO2, currently estimated at about two tons per person per year. Even with aggressive conservation initiatives on a global scale, it is likely that low-lying island nations such as the Maldives – bellwethers for inundation of costal lowlands worldwide – will be swept under the waves in a few generations if we rely on conservation alone. Inconvenient as this is, the loss of the Maldives is not inevitable. In this talk I will discuss a Geo-engineering approach to cool the planet using stratospheric aerosols – what it is and what it isn’t. Technology exists today to quickly (~40 years) counter rising temperature, restore Arctic sea ice, and minimize the consequences of global warming.
