Ssl: certificate_verify_failed

I am working on the “Using a Slider and Buttons” sample code from below in jupyter notebook with Python 3.7.

  1. I am receiving the following error
    URLError: <urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1056)>

  2. in relation to retrieving the data from the URL provided in the example (which does work to successfully display data in my browser.
    url = “https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plotly/datasets/master/gapminderDataFiveYear.csv

  3. There are numerous SO posts about related topics, most of which indicated to go to (on mac) Applications -> Python3 and then click both the files below:
    Install Certificates.command
    Update Shell Profile.command

I have tried to solve this from a number of approaches and remain unsuccessful. This is a non-starter issue for me to get going with the Plotly software

Please help, thanks!
