Environmental Sciences

What is this?

Environmental science studies the world around us from biological, chemical and physical perspectives.  It can encompass everything from geology, the world beneath our feet, to climatology, the atmosphere above our heads.

"You need to know enough of the natural sciences so that you are not a stranger in the world."

~ John Searle
