Join G. Wayne Clough, Georgia Tech's President Emeritus as he discusses climate change and Georgia Tech's role. Climate change has long been considered a “science problem,” and scientists are most closely associated with the issue in the mind of the public. When it comes to developing solutions, engineers have to get involved, but they are like the proverbial blind men describing an elephant – everybody understands only a small part of the problem. Because the true solutions to climate change are inherently interdisciplinary, we need engineers who are more broadly educated and able to communicate with the public.
