Sustainability can be broadly defined as the long-term ability of the human population to interact with the natural environment in a manner that allows both current and future generations access to a healthy natural environment.

Green Jobs Defined

"Jobs in the primary industries of a green economy that promote environmental protection and energy independence."

"A paid position providing environmental friendly products or services."

"Well-paid, career-track jobs that contribute directly to preserving or enhancing environmental quality."

It is an obvious, and unfortunately necessary, statement to proclaim that a healthy environment is vital to a continued human existence.

Nevertheless, society is not living in a sustainable manner. For example, the human population has swelled close to 7 billion, some experts estimate extinction rates at one thousand times pre-human levels, natural resources are being exhausted at alarming rates, and human activities have adversely affected the planet's climate.

Fortunately, there are people working on solving our environmental problems.
