Environment comprises of everything that surrounds us, thus the subject of environment or environmental science is extremely vast – it literally includes everything that is in your surroundings: the land, the water, the air and everything in them and everything that effects them. Along with all this our environment is dynamic and is constantly being changed for the better and (mostly) for the worse, thanks to anthropogenic activities (in simpler terms, human activities). Anthropogenic activities like habitat destruction, hunting and poaching, pollution and burning of fossil fuels are all factors that lead to climate change in one way or the other, which is a very real threat to our world.
Environmental science is important and everyone should know about it, so kindly check out: What is Environmental Science and Why is it Important? and to know about its branches, check out: Branches of Environmental Science – Interdisciplinary Field.
