Welcome to Environmental Science

The one and only Earth
This course will integrate Earth science, physics, biology, chemistry, economics and political science to give students an overview of how the Earth's systems support life and how human activity affects those systems. We will also explore issues concerning who gets to decide how human activity will affect the environment and other people.
