As the effects of climate change increase, engineers are key in leading mitigation and adaptation.
The effects of climate change are becoming more noticeable. Weather patterns are changing and sea levels are rising while becoming warmer. Decarbonization will help, but experts point out that problems would still exist even if greenhouse gas emissions were to stop now. This is requiring government leaders to consider ways to harden infrastructure and protect low-lying populated areas. Engineers will be leaned on to find ways to adapt and mitigate these events.
