NameIntroductionWhat are your tech skills? (only if you are a techy)What do you think about climate change?
Adrianold school web/dev and computer/networking stuff, interested in sustainable business development, bit of a eco-warrior :)front end web (HTML/CSS), PHP, javascript, some PERL, python, but ready to pick up and improve when req.dont mess with something you dont understand .. especially when your life depends on it. Always better to go with the flow
Al FureyWork in a cleantech startup, would like to get involved in changing perception of emissions reductions to a positive one, not spending, investing.Robotics PhD, Matlab/C, lately some R and ScalaWe need to act now,immediately. Everyone, but most especially the highest emitters. Would love to get a crew together to deploy an online, competitive, (gamified/fun/compelling) tool for monitoring and comparing personal/regional/corporate/national emissions reductions vs emissions reductions pathways. The emphasis should be on positive i.e sustainability progress to 100% not emissions reductions down. Tool should push the high emitters to exceed their emissions targets and make it easy to do so, i.e. link to sites for renewable energy, car sharing, led lights, offsetting etc. Affiliate fees to fund promotion.

Andrew HattonAndrew Hatton, Head of IT, GreenpeaceundefinedIts bad
Andrew StrettonData Architect / Data Scientist currently working with social data in marketingPython, NoSQL, machine learningWe need to get on with doing something, but also understand better the way the message is communicated and not judge people for doubting.
andyR programmer, maps & data visualisation. Ex ecologist.R & data stuff.It's happening, dangerous, our fault and we have the chance to mitigate risks.
andy bensonhi my name is andy bensonive been a developer for around 20 years currently work doing alot of database and quant stuff (sql,t-sql,pl/sql) but believe can pick up anything exploring python and r outside work at the momentIts THE issue of our times and has the potential to cause the earth to have a catastrophic future.But we seem to be sleep walking to oblivion without doing much about it because I suppose most people feel its not something which is going to impact them in their lifetime or they cant directly do much about it.
Andy JIT solutions analyst/developer with a particular interest in (marine) conservation15+ years as a developer/architect using a range of platforms and languages (web, desktop, mobile, C, C#, Java, Javascript, ASP, SQL, BizTalk, etc)A huge problem that as a society we must face up to and find solutions for
Andy LulhamWeb developer, previously for, 10:10, Lighter Later, Solar Schools. Open Knowledge Foundation labs member; MySociety code contributor.Various web programming languages and technologies (e.g. python, PHP, javascript).It’s kind of a big deal.
AnthonyReally interested in trying to do something about climate changeI am a product manager in my day job, I work in the field of big data so know about databases, a bit of hadoop and a bit of programmingIt is being ignored...
Anton FlüggeJust completed a PhD in computational and statistical rainforest ecology. With an interdisciplinary/computer-sciency background I am interested in data analysis, machine learning, computer modelling and optimisation, and complex systems.Machine learning, statistics, programming (main languages MatLab and Java, but also used others), some Android and web development experience.I am an optimist - humanity will be able to deal with climate change. But it is undoublty one of the major challenges of our time, we need to start to act, both for prevention and mitigation measures. Luckily, solutions to some of our problems in the energy and traffic sector (intelligent inter-connected systems of renewable/sustainable components) would be beneficial even without climate change. Implementing those intelligent solutions needs substantial technical expertise.
Barry Mac MahonWeb developer, can do devops, mostly Java background. Also a sailor. Chemistry academic backgroundGroovy and Java back end, decent front end, high scale web, finance It seems inevitable, but we should do what we can to mitigate it. Perhaps the current mass extinction event is a more significant issue
BasilHi there! My name is Basil and I am interested in tech, environmental sustainability and data.Not a techy - but great with data!Climate change is going to affect us in a massive way - and I feel the impact is currently being understated. I would like to play a part in the solution.

Less JS or Python. Sysadmin & security.Politicians still haven't realised how urgent it is. Just read and agreed with most of Berners-Lee & Duncan Clark's _The Burning Question_, but want to promote fee-and-dividend on extraction with border adjustments.
Chris AdamsI'm freelance developer and product manager, and I run Cleanweb LondonI'm comfortable working with (in order of familiarity): Ruby, Javascript, Python, PHP. Also front end, user testing, and I'm a scrum certified product ownerIt's _the_ existential of our generation.

Claudinescientist getting into tech.learning PythonI trust in the scientific process and I wish more people trusted the evidence for human-induced climate change.
Clifford SingerDigital campaigner at Social Spark and Digital Action Labfront-end design: html/cssnot good
Clive ElsworthI'm 53 and live in London with my wife. I was a "RESULTS" campaigner on Ending Hunger in the late 80's and 90's, which meant organised

meetings learning the issues, getting stuff in the media and visiting parlimentarians.
I've been programming as a freelancer for 20 years, although most of this was to maintain credibility for teaching public IT courses, mostly SQL based. I've designed and coded lots of LOB apps, more recently created a set of SSRS reports from a SSAS cube on council property maintenance. Now I'm developing with Silverlight / C# / MS Entity Framework / RIA Services. Yes I'm a Microsoft man, but that's what was on offer from the training company and it paid. My claim to fame - I installed the very first (co-ax) network cable in the Friends of The Earth Building in the 80s.In 2007/8 I watched Channel 4's "Great Global Warming Swindle", and my father accused me of being a member of the Flat Earth Society for believeing its message. So I started buying books on the subject, but it wasn't until I read James Hansen's Storms of my Grandchildren that I felt able to come down on the side of "It's real and Man Made".

As usual, the technology is there to solve the problem (Solar PV, even modern, safe nuclear) but not the political will. In this case it
will require a cohesive, robust international political will in order for sufficient fossil fuel to be left in the ground. That means educating and empowering the masses all around the world. So I'm happy to see Climate Change Coders have already taken the initiative. I've also taken an interest in US based Citizen's Climate Lobby who have around 50 compaigning groups in US/Canada. And I'm also writing a musical show called Climate For Change:
Dan CunninghamI run the global Geeklist #hack4good seriesUX design, information architecture, front-end development, ruby on rails, machine learningTo some extent is is inevitable so we need tools and initiatives to prepare for the effects and build resilience. Some actions can perhaps slow it down e.g. reforestation. And I suspect some large-scale geo-engineering is also possible to drastically change the situation - but that's a pretty scary concept with such a complex system here!
Dan FarrowFreelance web designer & father of twoDesigning & building websites with PHP, WordPress... learning LinuxIt scares me
Dan Smith26/m/kentish town. Front end developer, specialise in app development, mobile/desktop apps, data visualisation & interfaces. Professional experience visualising data & building data interfaces with government & NGOsFrontend: jQuery Mobile, Bootstrap, visualisation toolkits (D3, JIT, Raphael), a bit of angular & backbone
Backend: CouchDB, OpenRefine, graph/linked/semantic data (SPARQL, RDF, TTL), ontology modelling, API creation
I feel that my individual input will always be insignificant compared to that of organisations and corporations. I don't campaign or really spend any time at all thinking about climate change, so I'm left waiting and hoping for those corporations and conglomerates to make the first move, as a sort of "call-to-action" - that if they are willing to make the world greener, then it really is time to take action.

I can't see that happening though, so I'd be interested in contributing to something that could make a mark or disrupt the way of thinking at the higher levels of unreachable organisations.
Danii NebotFrontend dev, interested on all things JavaScriptJavaScript development, client side AngularJs, some EmberJs, fullstack Node.js with express and currently playing with Meteor.js. Some knowledge of MongoDB as well.Would like to help!!

David McRobertScottish cyclist who is still built like a prop.Recently graduated with an MSc using Java, Spring MVC, Hibernate and MySQL for my MSc project but have 8 years experience as a QA analyst with 5 of those in automation working as a developer in test. Work with Selenium Web Driver\ Eclipse. I follow the science quite closely, have taken Coursera courses in it and have a reasonable background in the physics. It is pretty clear we are not on a prudent course in terms of emissions either in the UK or globally and we are rapidly running out of room to maneuver.
Deborah Scott AndersonDeborah Scott AndersonundefinedI am looking for techies keen to help me build and exciting social networking site linking the effects of climate change and weird weather on gardens and to encourage investment and interest in renewable energies.

Duncan WalkerAnalyst in IT team at Friends of the EarthA dash of PHP and HTML/CSSIt's a massive problem for the short and long terms in itself and is emblematic of a lot of other problems - social, political and economic.

Make wordpress websites quite often (tweaking other people's themes, not creating them myself). Always looking to expand my skillset.It's fucking scary but on the bright side maybe it's a wake up call for humanity to start treating each other a bit more fairly and to put our fellow creatures and planet before our individualistic desires to be as rich as possible.

Hermione TaylorI'll be honest, I'm not much of a coder. But I run The DoNation, which is a web based organisation that's inspiring 1000's of people to start cutting their carbon and living more sustainably… and this sounds super interesting.undefinedWhat a question… where to start?!
I want to joke and say something silly, but it's not much of a joking matter. But then there's no good in being doom and gloom… hmm.
I guess I think this:
It's serious and pretty terrifying. But I have hope, because when we put our minds to it us humans are pretty smart creatures. We should be able to solve it. The challenge is how to encourage smart people to put their minds to it...

I have a 2 yearold with another child on the way and it really worries me that they and their kids will see climatic change on a scale not seen for millions of years. We need to do something to fix the problem we've made.

( I forgot many things but if it's necessary I can do it!). Also I have experiences about processing data.We borrowed resources from next generation. Furthermore, we pollute environment. And developed society have already polluted it. But only weak country people suffer from the effect. I'm not sure whether I can change it or not. However, at least I'd like to try to change it.
If you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek then I'd ask you to stand beside me.
