Engineers are the First Responders in the Climate Emergency


Possibly you hadn't thought of it that way yet. We normally think of climate activists and celebrities who make documentaries or scientists who write books as the front line on climate. We hope our political leaders do more than set targets and declare the climate emergency, but we don't know what action they would actually take. 

There are some things we hope for - First World Consumers will change their behaviour to be a bit more climate friendly. Billionaires will set aside a bit of their mega wealth to give it to climate advocacy groups. Car companies will change over their production lines to guilt free 4WD urban assault vehicles.

Most people believe that somebody will respond to the scientist's warning in time, and that the green future full of wind mills and solar panels will arrive in time.

We must reduce green house gas emissions in time. You can't if engineering does not change InTIME.
