2024, Issue 20

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: 

The Biden Clean Energy Boom (David Gelles, The New York Times[gift link]).

​​Far-right fossil fuel company allies pressure US supreme court to shield firms in unprecedented campaign (Dharna Noor, The Guardian). 

Environmental (in)justice articles of the week:

Wildlife habitat and tribal cultures threatened by Washington’s largest wind farm (B. Toastie Oaster, The High Country News)

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!
