Throughout history, humans have been finding and developing ever-faster modes of transportation — moving from horses to the cars and high-speed jets of today. We have been very successful in our search for faster transportation, but it has come at a price. Our vehicles have all had an effect on the natural environment. The good news is there are a growing number of people devoting their lives to solving environmental issues related to transportation. The young adults of today will be the job force of tomorrow, so choosing a career that will best fit with the needs of the changing world will be important to job satisfaction and a successful life. With the vast array of career and job options, it will also be important for young adults to understand which work will be the best match for their interests, talents, goals, and personality types. Certain careers are expected to gain importance within the early decades of the twenty-first century. The opportunities for jobs related to "green" transportation are expected to increase at a faster than average rate as the world looks to repair damages already done to the environment and prevent new problems. The future of the planet is dependent on the development of cleaner and greener forms of transportation. If you choose a career in green transportation, you can help put us on the road to a better world!
