Working on climate engineering?

Prof. Sikina Jinnah, a professor of politics and environmental studies at UC-Santa Cruz, will be the keynote speaker at the Tuesday, May 5th, CCRG Symposium, speaking from 12-1 (most likely). Jinnah is an expert on climate engineering, both the technical and the socio-political side.
