The Engineer's Role in Mitigating Global Warming
August 13, 2008

Civil and environmental engineers will play a key role in responding to many of the projected impacts of global climate change, including impacts to water supply from drought, changing storm patterns and severity, and the potential for increased flooding due to sea level rise and rainfall patterns. As leaders responsible for the public’s physical well-being in terms of the performance of infrastructure, engineers need to consider and debate these issues and prepare for the future now.

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has published a 73-page, special issue of Leadership and Management in Engineering (July 2008), entitled Engineering Strategies for Global Climate Change. In this collection of feature articles, several writers present visions of the future for which the engineering profession needs to further respond and act.

The articles are available online free to the public. Print copies of Engineering Strategies for Global Climate Change may also be purchased for $30 (ISBN: 978-0-7844-0997-8, American Society of Civil Engineers).
