Campaign Organizer, Impact, (Various Locations)

Our mission is to create the grassroots action, energy and power it takes to make an impact on important issues. We’re working on national campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, restore Clean Water Act protections to America’s streams, expand solar power across the country, end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, and counter the influence of Super PACs and billionaires over our elections.

Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and what issue we can make the biggest difference on in that state. For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a wavering senator in your state to vote the right way on crucial Clean Water Act protections. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that “going big on solar” is an opportunity to be a hero with the public.

The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year and $27,000 in the second year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Application Deadline: February 14, 2016

Global Warming Intern, Environment America (various locations)

Environment Massachusetts
Global Warming Campus Internship

Make a difference on global warming and clean energy this fall.
Work from campus, 4-7 hours/week.

Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.

The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.

But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.

We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.

This event is open, and Tufts University warmly welcomes to its campus members of the audience from across the Boston metropolitan area.

If Global Warming Is So Urgent, Why Is There So Little Action? / Why Climate Guilt Doesn’t Help

An event with psychologist and economist Per Espen Stoknes, featuring his new book, What We Think About When We Try Not to Think About Global Warming.

Climate scientists has failed to convince the public by over-relying on catastrophe framings and a guilt inducing, overly rational information approach. Understanding human responses to climate change is clearly getting just as important as understanding climate change itself. The ‘psychological climate paradox’ refers to the fact as the climate science gets more certain, the public in wealthy nations become less concerned!

Rich in story and examples, Stoknes reviews recent psychological research and explores emerging strategies for how to overcome this paradox. A more compassionate climate communication can now rely on approaches that employ the power of social networks, reframing, nudging, storytelling and better climate response indicators. Also, the acknowledgement of grief, helplessness and despair, as well as reconnecting with an intimate and personal experience within the air, can be a deep source of motivation for a grounded hope. Stoknes seeks to answer the fundamental questions: Is humanity up to the task? Or are we humans inescapably locked into short-termism?
