“Our elected leaders, our clients, and even our families are depending on us to solve these incredibly complex and difficult problems. When humanity is facing all of these challenges, they will not be solved by your accountant, by your lawyer, by your doctor, or even by your local politician, they will be solved by engineers,” commented Green during his virtual presentation to the ACEC Colorado membership. “We [engineers] hold a pivotal role in guiding this transformation,” concluded Green.
