The reasons why we need to study Earth science include environmental concerns, such as:

• global warming
• pollution

Now, more than ever, the planet is exposed to many different and damaging elements, such as carbon emissions from vehicles and chemical pollutants in waterways. Studying Earth science can be an effective way to understand more about the way the planet is constructed; this base knowledge may lead to a career in scientific research or environmental science. Earth scientists perform experiments and draw conclusions about the impact of variables upon the planet; they plan strategies to heal damage to the environment, through safer, "green" products, and through changes to government regulations.

Earth scientists may work with (and for) government agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); these agencies are "watchdog' organizations that use Earth science to monitor the acts of corporations and private citizens. When abuses are found, these agencies use the reports and experiments of Earth scientists as proof of damage to the environment. Over the decades, Earth scientists have contributed to big changes in industrial business processes in factories, nuclear plants, chemical plants, and more.

Also known as geoscience, Earth science is all about understanding the planet's unique makeup; subtypes of Earth science include geology, oceanology, and glaciology. Therefore, taking care of the world's oceans, ice caps, and natural rock formations is dependent upon understanding how that must be supported and sustained. Right now, sustainability is an important issue in our world; this is largely due to the hard work and dedication of generations of Earth scientists. Earth science may be studied in universities, colleges, and other specialized post-secondary institutions. Students at these schools will learn how to apply the scientific method to experiments that may, one day, improve mankind's ability to sustain the earth and its atmosphere and waterways.

If we don't study earth science we wouldnt be able to predict what happens in the world with disasters, weather, etc we would have no clue why things happened and how to prevent them we study earth science because we need to, too survive.

Our environment is super vital to us because it affects our way of living.
We rely hugely on the planet for way of life. The environment is our
habitat which makes up the complex array of humans, beasts, flora, and inanimate objects around us..

Environmental science is so vital because it show us how to look after the planet, which is vital now that industry is starting to damage the environment.

And understanding in earth science is the first step in making a change and protecting our planet.

Because it is important for a student to learn all the things on Earth and the things outside it.
