2024, Issue 19

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. 

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: 

Biden wages a war on coal-burning. Really! (Jonathan P. Thompson, The Land Desk).

We get more useful energy out of renewables than fossil fuels (John Timmer, ArsTechnica).

A new project promised low-income families ‘zero net energy homes’ – but they still rely on gas (Dharna Noor, The Guardian).

Real innovation vs Silicon Valley nonsense (Corey Doctorow, Pluralistic)

Environmental (in)justice articles of the week:

Oil Companies Contaminated a Family Farm. The Courts and Regulators Let the Drillers Walk Away (Mark Olalde, ProPublica/Grist).

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!
