“Why We Need Participatory Technology Assessments”

“2011 promises to be a year chock full of complex legislative debate over the policies of emerging technologies like synthetic biology and geoengineering, to name only two.

“The modern concept of geoengineering (or climate engineering) proposes to deliberately manipulate a planet’s climate, typically the Earth’s, to counteract the effects of global warming from greenhouse gas emissions. Other uses of the word sometimes occur, meaning geotechnical engineering.”
