EPA Looking to Hire 'Environmental Justice' Coordinator for $53,500-$84,146 a Year; No...

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 EPA’s 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.

It's difficult to come up with the proper words to express the stupidity of this. The EPA has become a huge toilet to flush taxpater money down the sewer.

Any kind of “justice” that requires a modifier, e.g. environmental, social, etc., isn’t.

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.

Environmental Justice is a term coined to persuade certain people that they are victims of institutional, governmental, or commercial racism and/or classism.

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.

They keep proving, over and over again, that they cannot be trusted with that power. It's time to take it back.

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.

If they are really sincere in wanting to hire an Environmental Justice Coordinator, then his job should be to SHUT DOWN the EPA.

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!

Only Communism and total control by the government can save the planet!
Only if we give ALL our money to government can we cause a perfect world.....just ask the families of the 100 million killed by totalitarian communist governments in the last century!

It's like something from a Superman comic in the 1950’s when Superman visited Bizarro World. Everything is upside-down in Leftist World.....

Sure, we need EPA infrastructure but of an American format.

We dont need anymore commie czars, and nefarious parallel government entities. Let alone ones created out of third world deficiencies.

“The fact is that many racial and ethnic minorities and poor people have to live, work and play in environments that cause them to be sick. Because they do not have the ability to move to other areas or change jobs, they often remain exposed to harmful materials for long periods of time, and suffer from a variety of illnesses.

This isn’t fair, is it? I’m sure you agree that everyone should feel safe where they live, play, go to school, and work! Since something obviously needed to be done, as early as the 1970’s an Environmental Justice movement was begun. Many community organizers and many people who were sick due to unhealthy environments, led efforts to bring attention to the fact that some people were sharing an unequal portion of illness because of where they lived, worked and played. But even with those efforts, little could be accomplished since there were no existing laws that addressed Environmental Justice issues. In 1994, in response to the continuing cries of protesters and demonstrators, President Clinton signed an Executive Order that directed the federal government to address the environmental health threats caused by people having to live, play and work in unhealthy environments.”

So, what it basically boils down to is if you live anywhere near a source of “pollution”, you get another welfare check.

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.”

Translation: When everyone lives in government owned housing projects.

The new House should DEFUND the EPA, DOEn, DOEd, HHS, Czars/staffing, wookie’s 21 of 22 assistants, all passed 0b0z0 bills, communist entities and union bailouts.

This shouldn’t take long. It’ll cut the government drastically and cut the deficit/debt by trillions.

Those Section 8 living accommodations come at quite a price, not only to your home value, but in the rent taxpayers have to come up with. My son used to live in apartments where he paid about $700 a month for a batchelor’s pad, while the welfare mommas, complete with half a dozen kids, cellphones, new cars, bling, cablevision, and boyfriend du jour, pay $25 per month. We taxpayers must make up the difference. I'm with you, I think it's environmental and economic injustice for me to have that crowd plopped down near my home and to have to pay for it on top of that.
