Here’s an interesting article entitled “Decoding the Value of Computer Science” in the Chronicle of Higher Education. The article purports to be about the importance of computer science degrees, and the risks of not enough people enrolling for such degrees these days. But it seems to me it does a much better job of demonstrating the idea of computational thinking, i.e. that people who have been trained to program approach problems differently from those who have not.
It’s this approach to problem solving that I think we need more of in tackling the challenge of climate change.
