The author reflects on the impact of environmental engineering on engineers in the U.S. He notes that environmental engineers are made up of most engineering titles. He contends that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predictions that business should be less affected by the poor economy than most tend to fit with some reorganizations. He anticipates that there will be growth in environmental regulations, and that companies will increase budgets for their environmental responsibilities.
