2024, Issue 18 Ed's jobs list for the week of May 19, 2024

Hi there! Welcome to Ed’s Clean Energy & Sustainability Jobs List, where we know climate change is caused by burning fossil fuels such as gasoline, coal, oil, and fossil gas (“natural” gas), and that burning fossil gas in our homes makes us sick. 


Housekeeping - the transition off of Substack has been a bit bumpier than I hoped, but I’m sorting the bugs out as I find them. If you run into problems, you can email me at edscleanjobs@gmail.com. Last week I didn’t have the right settings so if you tried to send me a job, it didn’t come through. That should be resolved this week.

I’ve made changes to my subscription model, read about it here. Jobs that require less than five years experience remain free. 

There are individual subscriptions available as well as career center subscriptions. College student? Please ask your career center to sign up for a paid subscription, especially if they pointed you here. Odds are they have not subscribed. 

Want to support the jobs list, but can’t swing a subscription? I started an affiliate bookshop on Bookshop.org that will send me a small affiliate bonus if you purchase books using this link (https://bookshop.org/shop/EdsCleanJobs). I also included a selection of books that I’ve enjoyed that address climate change and climate solutions.

What I'm reading this week: 

TVA's local solar program is about to get its biggest project yet (Julian Spector, Canary Media)

Column: Here’s what Exxon’s CEO gets wrong about the climate crisis (Sammy Roth, Los Angeles Times[may be paywalled])

How to spot five of the fossil fuel industry’s biggest disinformation tactics (Amy Westervelt and Kyle Pope, The Guardian)

Environmental (in)justice articles of the week:

Lawmakers take aim at community air monitoring in Louisiana (Terry L. Jones, Energy News Network)

Signal Boost: 

Are you paying for the American Gas Association’s fossil fuel lobbying? https://ditchtheaga.com/

A couple of key points for the new folks (and the old hands):

  • I'm not a recruiter.
  • You can send me job tips by responding to this email. Help me help you by putting them in the format that I use. Thanks in advance!
  • I don't post unpaid internships.  
  • This project is not related to my day job. Any opinions expressed here are mine alone and do not reflect those of my employer. 
  • Did you find a job from my list? Please let me know. I started this to help people and knowing I succeeded makes me happy. 

Thank you for subscribing, thank you for reading, and thanks for all of the job tips!

Good luck with your job search!
