Looft, Fred J.


This IQP report brings a brief description of the Environmental Justice movement and its history in US and some examples on how it sparked a worldwide concern on Environmental Racism. This report will also describe the many problems society has to face due to that injustice, its causes and consequences as well as some programs that help minimize the damages. Here I will mainly focus on a two year program the U.S. Environmental protection Agency developed to turn contaminated land into areas with renwable energy installations and how that program links to disadvantages communities that suffer with the environmental injustice.
