ITS and Climate Change

Among the agenda items facing the ITS Board at their annual meeting held June 3, 2007 prior to ICT2007 was the following proposal:

Proposal to Amend ITS Constitution to reflect Global Climate Change

WHEREAS Global Climate Change has emerged as the key challenge of the
modern age the Goals of the International Thermoelectric Society (ITS)
are hereby modified to include as the first goal:

"TO PROMOTE an understanding of the role thermoelectric technology may
play in environmental impact and mitigating global climate change."

Upon approval by the ITS Board, said goal is to be inserted in the ITS
immediately following the "Goals" section heading.

 I am pleased to report the proposal was approved unanimously and the ITS Constitution has been so modified.
