San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
What does the science really say about climate change?
How can we account for future weather in our designs?
Does this trigger any responsibilities for our profession?
What are the economic opportunities and challenges?
Come hear about climate science told from an engineering perspective, hear the latest scientific findings, and have your questions answered. This will be a two hour presentation with an intermission.
Speaker: Yannick Trottier, P.Eng.
Mr. Yannick Trottier, P.Eng. holds a degree from MIT in aerospace engineering, and completed a nine-week MIT class on Climate Science.
