Environmental science is a very important discipline that deals with the Earth and all of its natural and man-made components. Environmental scientists are trained professionals who perform a variety of environmental activities from conducting research to protecting the environment.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does an environmental scientist do?

Environmental scientists perform activities and carry out research to recognize, decrease, and eliminate hazards that affect the environment, people, and wildlife. They examine observations and measurements of air, water, soil, food, and other aspects to determine the best way to improve and preserve the environment. They preserve water supplies, monitor waste, and create programs to improve contaminated water and land environments. They also often create programs to help people get more involved in protecting the environment through a variety of efforts such as recycling and conservation. Environmental scientists often prepare reports and assessments on environmental issues. They collaborate with other professionals on creating policies of ways to modify human behavior to avoid harmful environmental effects. Many environmental scientists specialize in areas such as environmental biology, environmental chemistry, fisheries science, and environmental ecology and conservation.

What kind of training does an environmental scientist need?

Environmental scientists usually need at least a master degree in environmental science, chemistry, geology, physics, or related area. A bachelor degree may be sufficient for some entry-level positions. Doctorate degrees are required for research and teaching positions. Aspiring environmental scientists usually complete courses in physical geography, geochemistry, hydrology, geologic data, and hazardous-waster management. Environmental scientists often start their careers in field exploration or research and advance as they gain experience. They must stay up to date on advancements in the field and often complete continuing education throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as an environmental scientist?

Employment of environmental scientists is projects to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 25% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Population growth and increased demand for environmental and water resources will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good especially for environmental scientists with advanced education and extensive experience. Job openings will also stem from the need to replace environmental scientists who retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do environmental scientists make?

As of November 2009, environmental scientists with less than 1 year experience earn average annual salaries between $33,497 and $39,332. Those with 1 to 4 years experience earn average annual salaries between $36,048 and $47,831 (2).

A career as an environmental scientist is an excellent choice for individuals with a strong interest in the environment. Environmental scientists must have thorough scientific knowledge and be able to apply scientific principles to a variety of activities. They must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and ability to work as part of a team with a variety of other professionals. They must also have strong written communication skills because they often write technical reports and research proposals.
