If you're an adrenaline junkie, love high places and want a green job then a career in the wind energy industry may be for you. Ryan Balk and other employees of Rope Partner, a wind turbine maintenance firm, discuss what it is like to spend your work hours suspended from ropes 280 feet above ground. Just watching the video made me dizzy and a bit squeamish; I have a fear of heights and couldn't even imagine hanging around above nothingness for hours a day. I must admit, though, that the view is beautiful.
