I got a job trading hits for pieces.
We made wrinkles, advertized them as creases
Not subject to recession!
"The pay was pathetic.
It's a shame those boys couldn't be more copascetic!"

A Deadhead from way back when who is still trying to make a difference. I am a scientist doing environmental toxicology studies, and I run a foundation that is looking to support solar energy research. A shrine to the Dead is in my office, inclusive of a stuffedv Jerry doll. It centers me and helps me think thorough the complexities of what I do. I have had about 150 students work with me im my laboratory over the years, and they all know my passion for music and life. Best products of my life are those students and the careers they will follow.

Mr Charlie told me so...
Hey now I spent 20 years inspecting, regulating, building, remediating and trying to make a buck with landfills. i'VE composted sludge, run a recycling collection and processing center and a household hazardous waste facility. Trash was my life! Lately - the last five, I've been serious about the Gore kool-aid on the front line of regulatory policy development in the climate change war. What's your footprint?
If you're asking me, any of the majors are good companies. Up until a few years ago, my experience was with US based drillers but I went to work for a Canadian producer a few years ago and it's the best company I ever worked for in terms of being a responsible operator and having a great employee focus. Most of the large companies have the technical expertise and resources and are engaged in varying alternative energy sources or improving fossil fuel efficiencies. They have the budgets for these programs that the smaller operators simply don't have. Lots of opportunity in compliance related fields. The technology today is constantly evolving. I work with a lot of the "kids", mentoring them and it's been great fun. Lots of interaction with EPA, BLM, science related fields and the pay and bennies are great. There isn't nearly the level of crap to clean up that was around when I started my career and my experience the last 20 years has been that responsible operators are constantly challenged to reduce our footprint and get more out of less. We have to and we don't mind doing it. I'd recommend he scout some of the Canadian companies out.
My son's about to graduate w a degree in civil engineering: He'd really like to be involved with a 'green' company: what do you suggest? I'm about to retire from my job, so I want to make sure AJ has a good one lined-up ( so he can support my expensive habits).
