About Learn why Green Careers are so hot and how Scientists are using their skills to help solve our most urgent environmental problems, engage their values and earn a great living. From the headlines of CNN and Business Week to the speeches of presidential candidates, the nation is buzzing with talk about "Green Jobs"?, and the promise that they might create new employment; protect our environment and help the US become energy-independent. A new report from the American Solar Energy Society claims that there are currently 8.5 million green jobs in the U. S. and that this will increase to 40 million by 2030, about one-quarter of the total workforce. So what does this mean to science students entering the workforce over the next 10 years? In this presentation from well renown thought leader, Paul Hannam, we will provide answers to this question and more: What are Green Jobs; what are the numbers and trends? What are the hot sectors and jobs for the next decade? How can I prepare for a green career? How well-positioned is the US to lead the Green Business Revolution?
