SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
The Restoring the Climate: Achievable Solutions panel, at the Global Climate Action Summit, will explore the potential of climate restoration technologies to reverse the effects of climate change. With an emphasis on viable solutions, the carefully curated selection of experts will delve into why climate restoration is not only possible, but essential.
While current national and international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are important, they are not sufficient to mitigate the disastrous consequences of climate change forecast by the scientific community. Concerned stakeholders are increasingly looking to an emerging array of innovations to reduce the level of carbon in the atmosphere and to preserve and rebuild Arctic ice. These technologies include, but are not limited to: Direct Air Capture (DAC), which sequesters atmospheric carbon, and Ice Thickening, the deployment of a silica-based reflective sand to protect and restore Arctic ice. In the spirit of innovation and collaboration, this panel will discuss meaningful avenues to restore the climate to its pre-industrial state.
