Environmental Science affects Earth by fostering an understanding of interconnectivity between nature and human activity, which can help us find ways of reducing our impact on the planet.


Environmental Science typically affects Earth in a positive way by focusing on how we can reduce the negative impact we have on the environment.

For example... whether we like it or not, each and every one of us uses oil in some form or another, whether it be from our vehicles or if it's from everyday products we use that require oil in the production process, such as plastics. Bearing this in mind, Environmental Science can allow us to make more informed decisions to ensure that we're impacting the environment as little as possible, given the available data behind the choices made.
