What is environmental science?

The world is always changing. From cooling down to heating up, the earth is not constant. However, to understand what is normal and what needs attention, there needs to be qualified scientists who can study and determine the calculations.

During the 1960’s the field of environmental science became active and part of public interest. In the 70’s the topic really began to take shape and environmental issues were studied and visible.

Today, scientists within this industry develop an understanding on subjects such as pollution, management of natural resources, the processes of the earth, climate change, and forms of alternative energy.
