  Environmental science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Environmental science is the study of the interactions among the physical, chemical and biological components of the environment; with a focus on pollution and degradation of the environment related due to human activities; and the impact on biodiversity and sustainability from local and global development.
Environmental science encompasses issues such as climate change, conservation, biodiversity, groundwater and soil contamination, use of natural resources, waste management, sustainable development, and air pollution.
There are professional organizations that engender work in environmental science and aid in communication among the diverse sciences; the earliest known such organization, the Association of Environmental Professionals was founded in the United States; thereafter, a variety of other countries and states have formed such associations.
