What On Earth??

EPA To Spend $1.6 Million On Hotel Rooms This Fall

To Host Environmental Justice Conference

What The Heck Is Environmental Justice??

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will spend more than $1 million on hotel accommodations for an “Environmental Justice” conference this fall.

The agency posted its intention to contract with the Renaissance Arlington Local Capital View Hotel for its upcoming public meeting, for which it will need to book 195 rooms for 24 days.

“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), Office of Enforcement and Compliance, Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) intends to award a fixed-price Purchase Order … to the Renaissance Arlington Local Capital View Hotel,” the solicitation said. “The purpose of this acquisition is to cover the cost of 195 sleeping room nights from Sept. 9 [to] Oct 2, 2014, at government rate for the 50th public meeting of the National Environmental Justice Advisory Council (NEJAC), a federal advisory committee of the EPA.”

Rooms at the Renaissance Arlington run for roughly $349 a night. At 24 nights, the cost of 195 rooms will reach $1,633,320, or $8,376 per room.

The government per diem rate for lodging is $219 for September. If the EPA receives the per diem rate, the cost will come to $1,024,920 for the duration of their stay.

The NEJAC was established in 1993 to “obtain independent, consensus advice and recommendations from a broad spectrum of stakeholders involved in environmental justice.”

The council meets twice a year, bringing together members from community organizations, businesses, academic institutions, and state and local governments for “discussions about integrating environmental justice into EPA priorities and initiatives.”

The EPA defines “Environmental Justice” as the “fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.”




Really? Sounds like not just a total crock of horse manure, but an entire Olympic-size swimming pool full of it.  Sounds like a load of malarky you couldn’t pole vault over. Sounds to me like an excuse for various minority government managers to screw the taxpayer out of an extra 3 weeks of vacation.

And it’s been going on for more than 20 years. In all that time, have they created as much as one positive thing? No, not a document or an un-lost email. I mean a real, verifiable project that vastly improved the lives of a significant group of Americans identifiable by group characteristic, as their charter intends. For example, show me where some open coastal water usage bill was amended so that it improved the lives of Irish-Americans in the Southie district of Boston.

Hey EPA, I got your “environmental justice” right here: you owe us taxpayers ... 20 years X $1.6 million = $32 million plus the careers and pensions of every employee you ever allowed attend. Plus the Vig. Or else ...  hey, I know an environment, some brackish wetlands that would be justly improved by the addition of nearly 200 large deposits of protein and lipid dense fertilizer. Right here in New Jersey. And hey, you can even see the football stadium from there. Tell Jimmy H. we all said “hi”.

PS - you did notice that this will be teh 50th public meeting of a BS group that’s only been around 21 years at most, right? Which means that they’ve been sucking the sugar titty more than twice a year on average; they do 2 or 3 of these get togethers every year. That can add up to 10 weeks in some years, assuming all the conferences run the same 3 weeks plus like this one. 10 weeks of partying down, living it up in swanky hotels, with generous per diems, and a regular fat paycheck to boot. She-it, you’d need 4, maybe 5 weeks of regular vacation just to recover from that. Not to mention 10 or 15 sick days.

Somebody and his special bros got one hell of a motha effin’ scam going.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
