Planet Earth is a complex system that goes through consistent changes and regenerations. However, recent climate patterns suggest that humans may be largely impacting our world from pollution being found on the most remote islands of the world, to record high temperatures around the world.

In this section, we’ll consider what changes we’re seeing in our planet in areas such as the following:

  • Climate change
  • Ocean health
  • Air quality
  • Wildlife conservation
