#10 Environmental Economist
The increased focus on the environment and how to regulate things like fossil fuels, pollution, and an increasing list of endangered species has created a variety of jobs across many industries. An environmental economist is one of these jobs. Environmental economists conduct research to determine the risks, benefits, and any alternatives to policies, regulations, and other activities that affect the environment. This includes the use of fossil fuels, air and water pollution, and land conservation. They may also study the link between economic and environmental problems and create models to predict future outcomes.
