Environmental Courses Online
As alternative energy sources are being explored and the planet is being studied more intensely, the field of environmental studies is increasingly expanding:- by nature its very broad and diversified. People today are more interested in earth science and the environment now as compared to the past, as there is increased awareness in global warming and other environmental damage.
Then, for some of us, when we think about the environment, an overwhelming and conflicting sense of helplessness and guilt, coupled with, ‘it’s not my problem’, can assail us. We all live in this world and contribute to its exploitation, so each of us should be accountable. And yet at another level there’s a feeling that it’s the responsibility of governments and multinationals. After all, in our own small spheres we can’t stop people travelling by plane, or owning 2+ cars, or a hundred other excesses of modern day living. But there are countless things we can do in our own back yard that, in and of themselves, may not seem to make a world of difference to the environment. It all starts with each of us taking small steps: “Acting locally: thinking globally”.
