Just an observation... there seems to be countless openings for Environmental Review or NEPA specialists all across the county, for all levels of government and the private sector. The going salary seems decent. Someone coming out of college specializing in environmental planning would make a good candidate for the job but would probably be disappointed with the career since It seems to be heavy on the paperwork with very little actual planning.
So what's Cyburbia's take on this? Mine is this could be an avenue for planners looking for jobs.
