When they say that there will be a demand for 'green collar workers' what does this mean specifically?
Does it just mean that existing tradesmen and construction workers will have the opportunity to divert into energy saving work, building solar panels and such?
Obviously it's very appealing to have a genuinely ethical career, but I have no qualifications or skills to speak of apart from two years working at a 'recycling centre' (council tip ) I don't even have a flippin job at the moment! I wouldn't say i'm a hardcore flag waving environmentalist but I try to not be consciously wasteful and recycle my rubbish as much as possible. Working at a tip you can't help but be shocked at the sheer volume of the crap and waste that we as a society generate.
I'm just wondering if cleverer heads than me can throw up some suggestions on specific job roles in the 'green industry' that might be available to somebody like me, and any general thoughts or views on the topic are welcome.
