Climate change smarts now part of core competency for business professionals

Look - when even the bean-counters and paper-pushers recognize that climate change will affect business, perhaps - just perhaps - so should the political "leaders" who profess concern for business conditions. It suggests that our "political leaders" have other concerns. Perhaps ones even less noble.

Associations representing professions like engineering, geology, insurance, planning and forestry are all urging their members to get up to speed on their role in preparing for climate change.

Becoming knowledgeable won’t just help companies weather a changing climate – it could prevent professionals from being sued, said Tony Chong, chief regulatory officer at the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (APEGBC).
