Many of the full-time jobs that are critical to understanding and fighting climate change revolve around technical skills.
- Researchers that model the climate are really data scientists in disguise.
- Carbon credits, a tool that some governments use to limit companies’ carbon emissions, are increasingly powered by blockchain engineers.
- Sometimes whole tech companies, like teleconferencing ones, help fight climate change without us even realizing it. Zoom, Skype, and their competitors allow us to travel less for meetings, reducing our carbon footprints in the process!

Tech jobs tend to make a good deal of money — that’s one of the reasons so many of us are learning how to do them! If you’ve landed a tech job and you’re not able to dedicate time to fighting for the climate, consider donating to a climate change nonprofit instead.
