Jobs for a Green Planet

Earth2Tech lists the top 10 jobs that could potentially be created by the “green” wave. Here are a few of the exciting ideas:

Marketing – “Companies that are making moves to reduce their carbon emissions want credit for those (maybe painful) efforts. To do that these days, you’ve got to be able to talk the green talk.”

Vegetable Oil Pickup Person – “An environmentally friendly way to make biodiesel is using vegetable oil from restaurants to produce commercial amounts of fuel. It’s also a sign of the times that we’re replacing delivery [people] dropping off energy with pickup [people] carting it off.”

Green Building Manager – “Now that green buildings come equipped with wind, solar, rainwater catchment systems, greywater recycling systems, and a host of other high-tech energy savers, there’s a need for a new breed of building manager, one as comfortable at a computer as on a ladder.”

LEED Certified Builder – “Given the complicated and often-frustrating rules surrounding the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” standards, knowledgeable and accredited builders can command higher rates per square foot of construction.”

Eco-brewmaster – “Biofuel-producing algae are a hot investment trend right now, but they need concentrated amounts of CO2 to produce energy. It turns out that breweries are an excellent source of carbon dioxide. Visionary beermakers, New Belgium Brewing Co., are partnering with Solix Biofuels to feed the latter company’s algae in the process of churning out (the beer ever) Fat Tire.”

Most of these jobs can’t be outsourced to another country, so “green” innovations can improve our economy and our planet.
