How do the earth systems affect each other?
All of Earth’s systems work with each other, mudslides are an example of this. It starts with the hydrosphere with heavy rainfall which builds up in the ground, the biosphere. Earth systems work hand in hand with different processes and disasters. Without one system, another wouldn’t be able to function fully or properly.

How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling disasters?
Having an understanding of environmental science allows you to know how and why a disaster starts. This knowledge can help prevent a disaster from occurring and how to deal with the disaster and its aftermath.

What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future?
To create a sustainable future the first thing we need to do is educate. Environmental science gives people the background and understanding of why the Earth is in the state that it is today. Us putting in the effort to spread knowledge and being able to listen will put us on the path to a sustainable future.

Overall Reaction: It was interesting to learn about how mudslides start, it was something new I learned. I enjoyed creating a short creative video to go with the information me and my group put together.
