Transportation is all about turning energy into movement. The problem is that almost every single mode of transportation results in some sort of environmental impact. Even when you’re walking down the street, you’re constantly expelling carbon dioxide. After thinking about it for a while, I’ve come to the conclusion that floating down a river might be the cleanest form of transportation. Unfortunately, that’s not realistic for most of us (even if it is my favorite way to travel). Luckily, we have the International Council on Clean Transportation to help us all move towards cleaner transportation. They are a Washington, DC based non-profit that aims “to improve the environmental performance and energy efficiency of road, marine, and air transportation sectors and fuels, in order to benefit public health and mitigate climate change.”
The ICCT’s main function is to “provide first-rate, unbiased research and technical and scientific analysis to environmental regulators.” They do this all across the world with programs in Aviation, Climate and Health, Fuels, Heavy-duty Vehicles, Marine, and Passenger Vehicles, and a Transportation Road Map Initiative. To get a sense of what they have accomplished, I strongly recommend that you read the ICCT’s 10-year retrospective. If green transportation sounds like it might be your thing, take a look at the International Council on Clean Transportation’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Grant Administrator, and the position looks like a great fit for a new grad.
