“CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE” by Greg McCall ’83, Retired Mechanical Engineer
Why is a mechanical engineer talking on “Climate Change Science”? Receiving a liberal arts education at Hope College can allow you to have great flexibility in your career path. It was this flexibility that allowed Greg to spend part of his time following Climate Science at American Electric Power. This presentation will look at the core science of how the sun’s energy interacts with the earth’s atmosphere and discuss our understanding of the processes involved. Greg will be providing several important observations based on his experience with environmental and energy engineering.
Greg McCall was a Principal Engineer at American Electric Power (AEP) and an experienced leader in the Environmental management system space. He worked for AEP for over three decades, starting in the Analytical and Research & Development Section of the Mechanical Engineering Division before transitioning to the Acid Rain program in Environmental Affairs in 1992, and then again to the Environmental Strategy and Compliance Planning Group of Environmental Services in 1995. He holds a Master’s of Science degree from Purdue University’s School of Mechanical Engineering, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics (with a minor in Business Administration) from Hope College.
At AEP, Greg’s responsibilities included environmental management systems, global climate change technical/science support, and emission information management (Greenhouse Gas emission inventories).
Greg is married to Bryn and has two married sons, all of whom are Hope College graduates. He also has two grandchildren.
After Greg retired from AEP in 2020, he and his wife moved back to Michigan to be near family. They are putting down roots and becoming involved with a new church family in the Holland area.
