Nori’s reversing climate change podcast: Could there be a just solar geoengineering?—w/ Shuchi Talati, Founder of The Alliance for Just Deliberation on Solar Geoengineering

“Solar geoengineering. It’s not just a question of whether or not to do it, but of how it might be done and why. This week we are joined by Shuchi Talati, founder of The Alliance for Just Deliberation on Solar Geoengineering, to talk about who is making decisions about solar geoengineering and whether or not populations most vulnerable to climate change have a seat at the table.”

Listen to the episode here.

Resources Radio from RFF: Including Every Voice in Solar Geoengineering, with Shuchi Talati (July 2023):

“Host Daniel Raimi talks with Shuchi Talati, founder and executive director of the Alliance for Just Deliberation on Solar Geoengineering, about the potential of solar geoengineering as a tool to combat climate change. Talati discusses the science behind solar geoengineering, democratic and inclusive processes for engaging all nations in deliberation over the use of solar geoengineering, and public perception of the technology.”

C2G Talk: An interview with Shuchi Talati, Founder of The Alliance for Just Deliberation on Solar Geoengineering: How can Global South civil society be engaged in deliberations about Solar Radiation Modification? (July 2023)

“Consultation and engagement with civil society in the Global South is essential for inclusive governance of solar radiation modification (SRM), says Dr Shuchi Talati, the founder of the Alliance for Just Deliberation on Solar Geoengineering during this  C2GTalk. This will not be easy, and requires building trust and knowledge over time, but as international attention to SRM increases, it will be increasingly important to empower vulnerable communities.”
