#SEJSpotlight: Greg M. Schwartz, Freelance Investigative Reporter

#SEJSpotlight graphic for Greg M. Schwartz


Meet SEJ member Greg M. Schwartz! He specializes in covering the clash between science and politics that lies at the heart of nearly every environmental justice issue, with a specific focus on the EPA Superfund program. His series "2020 Hindsight Brings Corrupted Radiation Testing Into Focus at the EPA" — a sequel to the 2006 "Buried Secrets" story that launched his investigative reporting career with the Cleveland Free Times — connects the Tetra Tech "eco-fraud" scandal at Hunters Point in San Francisco back to an EPA cover-up at the Industrial Excess Landfill in Ohio, with Tetra Tech subsidiaries in the middle of suspicious radiation sampling and testing controversies at both sites.

Greg is a new member of SEJ this year and said, "It's good to know that there is still an organization that supports environmental journalism, since there isn't much of a market for such reporting these days."
