Complete title: EPA Looking to Hire 'Environmental Justice' Coordinator for $53,500-$84,146 a Year; No Degree Needed
(CNSNews.com) - The Environmental Protection Agency is looking to hire an environmental protection specialist who will help the agency accomplish its environmental justice goals."
The job, in New York City, pays up to $84,146 a year, and according to the job listing on the government Web site, "You do not need a degree to qualify for this position."
The EPA says the ideal candidate will have at least one year of experience related to the position, which comes with a salary range of $53,500-$84,146 a year. Any U.S. citizen may apply, and a background check is required.
The job description says the EPA is looking for people with "[k]nowledge of the theories and principles of environmental protection, especially as they relate to issues of environmental justice and the impacts of environmental laws, policies, legislation and regulation on minority and/or low-income groups and communities.
The person hired will plan ways of accomplishing environmental justice program goals and conduct studies and surveys to identify problems and recommend modifications to operations.
The person will be expected to develop an appreciation of the EPAs pollution prevention and clean-up activities and foster an increased sensitivity within these programs to environmental justice activities.
He or she also will help prepare environmental justice assessments for regional projects that involve minority and/or low-income populations.
As CNSNews.com has previously reported, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has made environmental justice an EPA priority.
In July, the agency released a 55-page guidance to help its employees advance environmental justice for low-income and minority communities. "Achieving environmental justice is an Agency priority and should be factored into every decision, the document says.
Earlier this month, the EPA listed 76 community groups and government agencies that will share almost 2 million taxpayer dollars in the form of "environmental justice grants."
The grants around $25,000 each -- will fund projects that help people living in poor, minority communities increase recycling, avoid heat stroke, improve indoor air quality, "reduce carbon emissions through weatherization," and participate in "green jobs" training programs.
The EPA defines environmental justice as the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.
The concept holds that low-income and minority communities often bear the greatest environmental burdens because they are more likely to be located near congested freeways or industrial areas, for example.
The agency says environmental justice will be achieved when everyone enjoys the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work.
WTF is “Environmental Justice?”
Any kind of “justice” that requires a modifier, e.g. environmental, social, etc., isn’t.
Same thing as "Social Justice", only more expensive...............
I don’t know but it sure isn’t what they try to say it is.
You're in a heap of trouble, boy!.................
LOL! Buford was a good ole boy.
Its a African/third world mentality where everyone demands justice thinking they have been wronged.
Why can they not have a department of enviornment with a director and managers like any other American organizational structure?
Its only a part of the upcoming parallel government dream of the dicktater.
"Oh, Great! They always use our money so wisely!
Let me try..
Wanted: Ivy League college graduate who is familiar with the radical environmentalist agenda able to read propaganda and create reports determining how American big business is polluting the earth.

Thus, if anything...anything...is built near your house or if anything is torn down or cleared away and you can even remotely connect that action with a negative result, no matter how tiny, YOU have been the victim of environmental injustice.
I think a freeper needs to apply for this job and report back to us :)
Ya can’t make up stuff better than this!
They keep proving, over and over again, that they cannot be trusted with that power. It's time to take it back.
You just described Algore.................
Someone high up in the EPA has a buddy, partner, kid or relative who needs a sweet job in New York City and pays up to $84,146 a year. This announcement is just to grease the works. Our tax money spent to please a government appointee or to improve his/her sex life.
The only environmental justice that I can think of is too sue everyone who has promoted the man-made global warming scam and shut down every agency that pretended that it was true. Then we'd begin to have some Environmental Justice.
The EPA needs to be shut down on the grounds that they have determined that the breath you exhale is a dangerous toxin!
