C2GTalk: Should the Caribbean region be involved in solar radiation modification research? with Michael Taylor

May 15, 2023 43 min listen

Caribbean countries have led the global push to limit warming to 1.5°C because the impacts of going above that would be so severe for their future wellbeing. In a C2GTalk, University of the West Indies' Professor Michael Taylor said it was important for the region to be involved in the research and governance of solar radiation modification, because decisions may soon be needed as to whether it could be an option to keep temperatures down.

Taylor is professor of climate science and dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology at the Mona campus of The University of the West Indies (UWI). He is the co-director of the Climate Studies Group, Mona (CSGM) which is a center of regional thought and expertise with respect to climate change science for small islands and the wider Caribbean. He is a coordinating lead author for Chapter 3 of the Special Report on 1.5 Degrees of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Taylor has also received the Silver Musgrave Medal for Science from the Institute of Jamaica and is the 2019 ANSA Caribbean Laureate for Excellence in Science.
