Environmental science is interdisciplinary. It uses skills from physics, biology, chemistry and geography to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems. Environmental science incorporates more of the social sciences for understanding human relationships, perceptions and policies towards the environment. Environmental scientists look at earth processes, evaluating alternative energy sources, pollution control, natural resource management, and the effects of global warming and climate change. Environmental issues almost always include an interaction of physical, chemical, and biological processes.
Environmental science is the most important science in terms of saving the planet for future generations. It is the most diverse science and with the focus now on climate change, this discipline will be the most relevant science to our future job market.
