Warwick Economics Guest Lecture with Graciela Chichilnisky

The Department of Economics is delighted to welcome Graciela Chichilnisky, Professor of Economics and Mathematical Statistics at Columbia University and Director of the Columbia Consortium for Risk Management, to present a guest lecture.

The Role of Carbon Capture in Mitigating Climate Change

Date: Thursday 25 May, 15:00-16:00
Location: FAB0.03, Faculty of Arts Building

Peter Hammond, Emeritus Professor of Economics, will introduce the speaker and chair the Q&A session at the end of the lecture.

This event is for students and staff only and registration is required in order to attend.  

About the Talk

The carbon market of the Kyoto Protocol introduced by the author in 1997 succeeded in its mission to reduce emissions. But the world as a whole increased emissions and now everybody including the UN IPCC and the US NAS agree on the need to remove the legacy carbon that is already in the atmosphere - about 500 gigatons. The presentation will discuss how to achieve this.

This will be followed by drinks and nibbles in the Faculty of Arts Building Foyer, where you will have the opportunity to meet Graciela.

About the Speaker

Professor Graciela Chichilnisky is Professor of Economics and Mathematical Statistics at Columbia University and Director of the Columbia Consortium for Risk Management. She is the co-founder and, until 2022, was the CEO of Global ThermostatLink opens in a new window, where she co-created a carbon removal technology that can reverse climate change - an immense step toward successfully mitigating the global carbon cycle. Under Professor Chichilnisky’s leadership, the company was awarded a Silver designation on Pepperdine Graziadio Business School’s 2020 Most Fundable Companies List, and its technology was chosen by MIT Technology Review as one of the Ten Breakthrough Technologies of 2019, a list curated by Bill Gates.

As a world-renowned economist and environmental scientist, Professor Chichilnisky has made lasting impacts on environmental law making by creating, designing, and writing the carbon market of the United Nation’s Kyoto Protocol. Professor Chichilnisky also worked as lead US author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which won the Nobel Prize in 2007. Both events are documented in Professor Chichilnisky’s two recent books, Reversing Climate Change and Saving Kyoto, which won the American Library Association’s 2010 Outstanding Academic Title of the Year and the American Geographical Society’s Book of the Month Award in October 2009.

As the recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award (2017-2018), Professor Chichilnisky’s research on effective ways of reversing climate change has been recognised to have lasting contributions to society.

Wiggins on Ethics

“In Ethics: Twelve Lectures on the Philosophy of Morality, David Wiggin surveys the answers most commonly proposed for such questions—gathering insights from Hume, Kant, the utilitarians, and the post-utilitarian thinkers of the twentieth century. The view of morality he then proposes draws on sources as diverse as Aristotle, Simone Weil and present-day thinkers such as Philippa Foot. As need arises, he pursues a variety of related issues and engages additional thinkers—Plato and Bernard Williams on egoism and altruism, Schopenhauer and Aurel Kolnai on evil, Leibniz and Rawls on impartiality, and Montaigne and J. L. Mackie on ‘moral relativism’, among others.” For the most part, the seminars are planned to take in person, in S2.77, but we move online for some later sessions.

Thursday May 25, 3–5pm: Chapter 5: The laws of morality as the laws of freedom and the laws of freedom as the laws of morality
