Green jobs on the increase
As employment in the fossil fuel sector declines, more and more
people are finding work in the renewable energy sector and related
professions, with the number of 'green jobs' expected to swell
considerably in the coming years, says a new study. "Growing automation
and corporate consolidation are already translating into steadily
fewer jobs in the oil, natural gas, and coal industries - sometimes
even in the face of expanding production," according to the latest
'Vital Signs Update' from the Worldwatch Institute, a Washington
DC-based research institute focused on sustainability issues.
Meanwhile, "renewables are poised to tackle our energy crisis and
create millions of new jobs worldwide," says Michael Renner, senior
researcher at Worldwatch.
