Esoteric Question: Is there any overlap between cybersecurity and climate change? Are there people working/ with an interest in both?

I know it’s an esoteric question and likely won’t get much traction on here, but thought I’d ask anyway. I used to be active in environmental causes before I got into cybersecurity for employment/financial reasons.

I love cybersecurity and I love my job. I like that in a way I am helping people, which is important to me. But lately I’ve been having some shadows of doubt in my mind that I could or should be doing more, and I find it difficult to see any intersectionality between the two areas. I know not what everyone will feel this way and I’m not taking a moral high ground and implying that everyone should care.

But I am wondering, are there cybersecurity professionals out there that feel the same way? Are there any informal or industry groups that aim to put their skills to use to help out companies involved in environmental areas, etc.?

Sorry, I know this is a weird post but thought I’d see what people think.
