George Collins has worked on a variety of climate change topics, including common-law climate litigation, international treaty processes, a Bayesian framework for climate negotiations, and the embedding of agent-based political models inside global climate models. Within climate engineering, his current research interests include potential humanitarian consequences, interactive methods for exploring complexities and uncertainties, and communications heuristics for minimizing the possibility that high-leverage climate engineering might interfere with efforts to effectively mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. He works with several nonprofit organizations on gaming and scenario planning in the context of climate change, and is a co-founder of the Geoengineering Scenarios Working Group. By day, he works at a law firm in San Francisco that represents corporate whistleblowers. George received his J.D. from the Yale Law School along with a Masters in Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
