“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.”
