Environmental

In order to be able to grasp the concept behind the term environmental, one must be able to define the term environment. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the conditions that surround someone or something; the conditions and influences that affect the growth, health, progress, etc., of someone or something is called environment.

As an individual branch, environmental science emerged in the 1960s and 1970s. The creational spark was as the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill catastrophe along with the publication of Rachel Carson's book called ‘Silent Spring’ concerning the rising of the environmental issues. In order to resolve environmental issues, several branches were combined with the purpose of producing complex analysis on concerning issues. These branches include ecology, biology, physics, chemistry, zoology, mineralogy, oceanology, limnology, soil science, geology, atmospheric science, geography and geodesy.

Related branches include environmental studies and engineering. The first one is concerned with the human factor and the very perception of environment. The second branch more focused on the development of the technology necessary for the overall improvement of environmental quality.

Now that we have clarified the term and the science behind it, let us move to the content of this particular category. The task at hand here is to give you the profound knowledge on the various environmental issues that we are facing today.

Discover what it is like to live in the most polluted place on Earth. The residents of a coal-mining town of Linfen in China are forced to live in a smog engulfed area with dangerously polluted rivers.

Can you imagine what would be like to live in a completely pollution-free world? Is it possible to have transportation with zero emission, an absolutely renewable energy sources and non-polluted drinking water? Find the answers to these questions in a documentary that we provided for you.

Explore the origin of life itself and learn what you can do to prevent the ongoing transformation of Earth from a place we call home to an inhabitable planet. Certain scientists predict that in the matter of ten years natural resources will be utterly spent and the climate drastically changed.
