Many things seem to be going “green” these days and for good reasons. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the world population is expanding at a mind-boggling rate. The world reached 1 billion people in 1800; 2 billion by 1922; and over 6 billion by 2000. It is estimated that the population will swell to over 9 billion by 2050. That means that if the world’s natural resources were evenly distributed, people in 2050 will only have 25% of the resources per capita that people in 1950 had (Go Green Initiative, 2011). Yikes! With this in mind, green companies are sprouting up in lots of places. The Department of Labor has an interesting web page that has information on green careers.
