Here’s a short, punchy YouTube showing why clean, well-paying solar jobs keep increasing while jobs in our most filthy energy source, coal, keep decreasing.
It was put together by Vox.
Solid economics and basic common sense… if you know someone looking for a career, please turn them on to the many solar training programs at the junior colleges, trade schools and union training programs near where they live?
Really, when it comes to jobs why live in fear when we can live in hope?

Not sure where to start saving the planet (civilization, really)? Always remember the exciting truth that “Hope is a renewable resource.” Then, our practical answer becomes “Start by deeply knowing your three personal Superpowers: ”
1) To save the planet, CHANGE YOURSELF FIRST;
2) To save the planet, INVEST YOUR WORKING LIFE;
3) To save the planet, USE YOUR VOICE and take advocacy seriously! Never miss a vote and never, ever stop influencing your government and all businesses locally, at the state level, and at the national level.
It falls upon you and I to lead the way with substantive global warming solutions. (Far from being a bummer, this is actually a fun trend for each of us to be part of… get energized!) Our kids and their kids will be proud of us…
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. No one else is going to do your part for you… never give up.
