Why do climate tech jobs matter?

Lightning BoltThe harsh reality is:

  • We are 5 years from reaching a global temperature of 1.5 degrees Celsius (or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • We need to reduce greenhouse pollution by 50% before 2030 and 100% by 2050.
  • We are already experiencing millions of deaths per year and billions of economic damages thus far. Each year this number is increasing (this is being tracked by Yale Climate Connections).

Partly Cloudy Despite this, though, there is still hope. Currently:

  • There are more than 4,000 companies solving the climate crisis.
  • Many of these companies are always hiring.
  • Hundreds of billions of dollars are being used to solve this problem, and much more is coming!

Task 1: Complete the Climate Crisis Venn Diagram

Complete as much of the Venn Diagram as you can. If this mini-course will have taught you anything by the end, you will be able to complete the circle: What work needs doing? We will remind you to circle back to it once you have found the right solution to work on.

You can complete this in a document or on paper. Be sure to keep it saved.
