Join Dr. Ye Tao along with Dr. Peter Wadhams, Paul Beckwith, and Regina Valdez for a presentation and conversation on the MEER ReflEction Framework. MEER:ReflEction stands for Mirrors for Earth’s Energy Rebalancing: Resource-driven engineering for leveraging Earth’s chemistries to immediately offer climate remediation.
This video was recorded at COP26, Glasgow, Scotland, in the Durdle Door press conference room on November 3rd, 2021, and published on November 26th, 2021. This presentation is brought to you through a collaboration with FacingFuture.Earth /// FacingFuture.TV.
According to Dr. Tao, temperature rise is the biggest and gravest concern that we face. We are overstepping a heat threshold. Thermal stress decimates biodiversity, ruining aquatic, marine, and terrestrial ecosystems alike. Humans may not be around once we transgress that redline. If we survive, we can have conversations about lowering emissions and deacidification. Prioritize temperature—then worry about greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and carbonic acid in the oceans!
MEER’s four fold mission is:

Dr. Ye Tao - In 2020, Dr. Ye Tao founded the MEER:ReflEction Framework after grasping the accelerating and ultimate consequences of the climate crisis on Earth’s delicate web of life. Educated as a nanotechnologist and instrumentation expert, he brings the benefits of a multidisciplinary background in engineering and science to problem solving.
Dr. Peter Wadhams - Peter Wadhams ScD, is emeritus professor of Ocean Physics, and Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. He is best known for his work on sea ice.
Paul Beckwith - Climate Systems Scientist. Professor at the University of Ottawa’s Paleoclimatology Laboratory as well as at Carleton University
