1. How do the earth systems affect each other? I’d say it’s kind of like a domino effect. If something happens to this system, in the long run, it ends up making this system do something different. This makes the most sense to me since pretty much everything on this planet is connected and caused by something else. 2. How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? I feel like we’d understand more of why things happen and how it’s happening. When we see extreme weather and other crazy things, it would be more of an “Oh! This happens because of this”. It wouldn’t be as shocking as it usually is. 3. What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? I believe we should try to be more conscious of how our actions affect everything around us. If all of us realize how much of a domino effect we have on literally everything it would make a big difference. I say this because, at the end of the day, a lot of people just might not know about certain things that do big harm to the universe.
