Environmental jobs are reference to a group of occupations that share the common objective of protecting Mother Nature from harmful factors.
The harmful factors that threaten the safety and protection of the environment are global warming, pollution, ocean acidification, toxicology, and ozone depletion.
People with environmental jobs, who are sometimes referred to as green-collar workers, are responsible for coming up with new ways to eliminate environmental problems and maintain ecological balance.

It is the objective of environmental engineers to make the environment more suitable for human habitation.

Environmental lawyer jobs
Environmental lawyers are licensed attorneys who represent clients who are involved in legal cases concerning the environment. The cases handled by environmental lawyers include everything from wilderness preservation and land contamination to waste management and energy conservation.
Like other lawyers, environmental lawyers also defend their clients inside courtrooms: they attend hearings and ask questions regarding the case. They can also be on the prosecution side, usually against companies whose practices pose threats to the environment and people in general.
