How do earth systems affect each other? - They affect each other because they all interact with each other and trigger different things and processes that affect not just us but all things in life, 2.

What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? - If we now have the knowledge to if not prevent but slow these things, we can actually take the steps towards doing so. The hard part is just trying to get others to understand and get on board. Reflection and Reaction: After doing research on tornados I did find out some dangerously cool information.
