Climate change affects all of us. You may have already seen news stories about some of its scarier impacts, like larger wildfires, stronger storms, and melting ice caps. But those brushes with climate change can leave us with more questions and fears than answers and solutions.
That’s why Codecademy has teamed up with the environmental nonprofit 350.org to create “Learn to Fight Climate Change,” a course about what climate change is, what’s causing it, and how you — yes, you! — can make a difference. After all, we need a stable, healthy planet in order to write our best code.
If you’re already familiar with climate change, why it’s bad, and what’s causing it, feel free to skip ahead to section 6 to learn about how you can join the fight against it — including by using the technical skills you can learn on Codecademy!
