What is climate change?
Climate change refers to long-term alterations in Earth's average weather patterns, primarily driven by the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. These gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O), trap heat from the sun that would otherwise escape into space, leading to a warming of the planet.

Despite the large mass, it is not uncommon for these cranes to be blown along the crane rails, potentially into other equipment or toppling over, giving rise to extensive damage.
The traditional assertion that storm events are unexpected and their consequence unavoidable may no longer be simple to establish. Planning from the outset is as critical as planning for the emergency.
