How can engineering geology help society meet the challenge of a changing climate?


Global warming affects us all. We are experiencing the most severe drought condition in 1200 years in parts of the western United States. Massive fires in these desiccated areas devastate grasslands, forests, and communities. Supplies of potable fresh water are reduced in many places. Rising sea level places coastal infrastructure and communities at risk, and historic rainfall events cause equally historic floods and trigger landslides. The changing climate can worsen existing problems of environmental justice. How can engineering geology play a constructive role in helping society to find just and effective remedies to these challenges?
