"Less Is More"
Sustainability. Sustainability has many similar but different meanings across different fields. Basically it refers to humans using resources modestly so that the same resources are available for future generations. It refers to humans living within their means, sonsuming resources at a rate below the sustainable yeield.
Environmental science is the study of how humans impact the envirnment. It focuses on how humans use resources and alter the environment in the atmosphere, biosphere, geophere, and the hydrosphere. A major goal of the course is for students to learn how to identify and solve environmental problems. It is a science course and is therefore about the science of phenomena related to the environment.
