Climate Change and Ocean Acidification
- Chairman of the Board, North America Energy Holdings
As atmospheric CO2 concentrations continue to rise, there are broader implications than just global warming. About one-half of the anthropogenic CO2 emitted has been absorbed by the oceans, causing ocean acidification. In this talk, Bayless will discuss the compounding problems created by this process.
Bayless is the past president and provost of West Virginia University Institute of Technology and former chairman, president, and CEO of Illinois Power Company and Tucson Electric Power. He holds an MSEE in power engineering, a JD from West Virginia University, and an MBA from University of Michigan.
