2024, Issue 23

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’m going to take next weekend off in observance of the Fourth of July holiday here in the U.S. I’ll be back in your inbox on Sunday July 14.

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: 

Cleantech has an enshittification problem (Cory Doctorow, Pluralistic).

Has Your City Passed the ‘Bikeability Tipping Point’? (Kea Wilson, StreetsBlog).

Supreme Court curtails agencies’ ability to enforce regulations (Erin X. Wong, High Country News).

Here’s What the Court’s Chevron Ruling Could Mean in Everyday Terms (Coral Davenport, Christina Jewett, Alan Rappeport, Margot Sanger-Katz, Noam Scheiber and Noah Weiland, The New York Times [gift link])

Environmental (in)justice articles of the week:

Colorado Judge Rejects Exxon, Suncor Attempt to Kill Landmark Climate Lawsuit (Jake Johnson, Common Dreams)

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!
