AOSS 605-01: Engineering Climate Change

AOSS 605 Letter to President-Elect Obama

We, the Student Council on Climate Change at the University of Michigan, would like to share our research, ideas and suggestions on how to take action for a positive effect on the Earth's climate. Throughout the past four months we have had brilliant minds, experts in the field of climate change from throughout the United States with substantive experience in health, economics, engineering and science, come to the University of Michigan to share with us what they have found through their research and to give us their ideas on subjects ranging from the health risks of the changing climate to geo-engineering with its benefits and risks for a changing climate.
