Introduction to Climate Change
This online engineering PDH video presentation provides the background of what climate change is, the latest science concerning the causes of climate change, and why a company or other entity will stand to benefit in reducing GHG emissions. It also discusses risks related to Climate Change that can affect your company.
Climate Change is regarded internationally as one of the great challenges to mankind. There is little dispute that the climate is changing at a faster rate than ever, which will have great effects on public health, on our physical infrastructure, business, life and death in many countries, and our way of life. All of the major scientific agencies and associations publicly state that the major increase in the rate of emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) caused by human-induced activities is at least a significant contributor to Climate Change. A recent global conference has resulted in an agreement to attempt to achieve a global reduction in GHG emissions. Many nations will create or change rules to limit GHG emissions. Many businesses will respond by attempting to reduce them. In many cases, actions to reduce GHG emissions also provide significant financial benefits.
This 3 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for chemical, environmental, mechanical and industrial engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the issue of Climate Change and GHG emissions.
This PE continuing education video presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the background about Climate Change and its importance
- Learning about different GHGs, including their sources and activities that cause emissions
- Understanding why a Climate Change or GHG emission reduction program will benefit your entity
- Knowing the different risk factors involving Climate Change and how to address such risk issues.
