Session Speaker

Ken Caldeira

Ken Caldeira is a climate scientist at the Carnegie Institution for Science, where his job is “to make important scientific discoveries.” He serves as Professor (by courtesy) in Stanford University’s Department of Environmental Earth System Science. Caldeira coauthored the first peer-reviewed study to estimate how much near-zero-emission energy would be required to stabilize climate (published in Nature in 1998), and he was the lead author of the first peer-reviewed study to estimate how much carbon dioxide could be emitted and energy would be needed to avoid surpassing 2°C global warming (published in Science in 2003). He coauthored the first climate modeling study of solar geoengineering (published by Geophysical Research Letters in 2000) and a seminal study on ocean acidification (published in Nature in 2003). Caldeira has contributed to several National Academy, UK Royal Society, and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports, including the recent “Fifth Assessment Report” (“AR5 Report”) and a 2005 report on carbon capture and storage.
