As most of us are now aware, global warming and the changing climate conditions are perhaps the biggest problems we face at the moment. If you want to find out more, perhaps with the goal of making a difference in some way, an increasing number of schools and colleges now offer climate change studies. You can expect to gain an understanding of the political, economic, scientific and ethical effects of our ever changing climate, and the various steps that are being taken to address these issues. An interest in science, the environment or meteorology is obviously useful, and taking such a course opens the door to a variety of possible careers in science, politics, environmental research, agriculture and more. Studies indicate that around 70 percent of Americans under 34 are concerned about all this; if you are one of them and researching career options, this may be for you.
