Looking for a high-paying career? Well how about becoming a climate scientist? According to an article in National Review entitled “All aboard the climate gravy train,” author Ian Murray explains that while global warming advocates like to portray climate scientists as poorly paid academics, immune to the influence of money, climate science has actually become one of the highest paid professions in America. He notes that while firefighters average about $21 per hour and university professors around $50, climate scientists average about $73 per hour, making it the third highest-paid public sector job, ranking even above judges. So apparently, there is a lot of “green” floating around environmental science after all.
