From Greentech Media: “How the US Wind Sector Is Building Momentum, Driving Economic Benefits”

Clean wind energy is producing jobs at a fine growth pace… inspiring confidence in the wind industry.  If you are a young person looking for a way to invest your career in a trade which saves the planet, wind energy is a great place to look – particularly for those with construction and electrician skills or aspiring to learn them!

From Sushma Udipi Nagendran of the always-awesome Greentech Media, this article with the subheading:  “Five graphics that show strong growth in U.S. wind energy…”

It is very interesting how steady the industry’s growth has become as it has gained investor, utilities and government confidence, so that right now wind energy approximately equals hydroelectric energy in the US, seen in the third chart.

Take a look at the article and savor the concise picture its charts give readers?  Investing one’s career in climate change solutions is more than simply learning the job skills:  One must also “go-to-school” on every article and source of insight about your target industry you can lay your hands on:  For example, see the Nagendran’s first chart for a sense for where the jobs are… or the fifth article showing the industry’s growth rate:  By adding turbines capacity every year, that tells you there will be steady job prospects.

(A bonus:  For those readers interested in advocacy and using their voices to fight climate change, take a look at the fourth chart showing the surprisingly high success clean wind energy experiences in red states, which one might wrongly expect are resistant to renewables… if you live in one of those states doesn’t this open up a way to use your voice to influence the local civic conversation?  If preventing global warming weren’t enough of a good reason to use capture wind energy, point out that its cost keeps getting cheaper, putting cash back in utility customer’s wallets!  Basically, you pay for the upfront equipment and, forevermore, the raw energy is free except for maintenance… a very good deal for frugal local consumers.)

Not sure where to start saving the planet (civilization, really)?  Start by deeply knowing your own personal Superpowers:  

1) To save the planet, Change Yourself First;

2) Invest Your Working Life;

3) Use Your Voice and take advocacy seriously!  Never miss a chance to vote, and never stop influencing your government and businesses locally, at the state level, and at the national level.  Lead the way with global warming solutions.

And in all cases and at all times, cast aside the learned-helplessness that infects so much of modern life… the time is now for climate change solutions.
