I came to know how the power of sun drives our world’s climate and the life giving cycle of water. How animals adapt to the climate of planet earth. Also learned about the climate zones and how the sun shapes the earth’s climate as a whole.
The animals shown in the film adapt to their environment depend on many things like the animals that live in the severe cold weather (very low temperature) such as polar bears and caribou have thick furs. The caribou specifically has hollow winter hair and the polar bear has many layers including fur which helps them stay warm in the cold climate in which they live in. Amur leopard also lives in cold weather but they do not have fur as

Earth Science is the study of the Earth and its neighbors in space
the four basic areas of Earth science study are: geology, meteorology, oceanography and astronomy.
Geology deals with the composition of Earth materials, Earth structures, and Earth processes. It is also concerned with the organisms of the planet and how the planet has changed over time. Geologists search for fuels and minerals, study natural hazards, and work to protect Earth's environment
Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere and how processes in the atmosphere determine Earth's weather and climate
Oceanography is the study of Earth's oceans - their composition, movement, organisms and processes

Pollution is a major global concern because of its harmful effects on the person’s health and on the environment. Everyone is affected as we are all inhabitants of this one and only place we call home, our planet Earth. Each person has something to contribute to prevent its further deterioration, to help ourselves, the children and ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come. We can help combat pollution in our own immediate environment if we are aware of the nature and form of pollutions and its effects on us and the environment

Elements of Earth Science
March 23, 2012
The East African Rift System (EARS) seems to be one of the most amazing geographic studies of the world. A rift can be defined as a split in the earth’s surface that becomes wider over time. In this case, the EARS has developed into two plates or branches, which have been named the Nubian Plate and the Somalian Plate. The two branches include a west branch, which consists of the African Great Lakes, and a nearly parallel east branch, which divides Kenya from north to south and enters Tanzania. Because the

Earth Day is a holiday designed to raise awareness of environmental problems and foster an appreciation for the Earth and the natural environment. The United States government defines the holiday as a time to celebrate gains, create new visions, and accelerate progress for environmental change.

Although April 22nd is the much publicized date of the holiday, the day is actually the second Earth Day, founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970.

In The Good Earth, by Pearl S. Buck, there is a cycle of life. It was a cycle of dedication, determination, and its successes. Wang Lung and his family experience a lot of changes, like suffering through a drought, adjusting to the South, and then becoming rich. Lung’s dedication to his soil led him to great success, but he soon realized having it all isn’t the answer to everything.

The Big-Bang Theory, accepted widely by atheists and many scientists, simply says this: between 10 and 20 billion years ago a “bang” or explosion occurred from a single point in nothingness and with the scattering of googles of atoms, the earth came into being. An eruption of sorts occurred, haphazardly distributing the smallest particles of matter that miraculously adjoined themselves to create living, breathing organisms and every other object on the earth.

But we are living in a time of both ecological and spiritual crisis, one in which we are loosing species at unprecedented rates and in which masses of people are desperately seeking some spiritual direction in life. It is possible that the only way to restore wholeness may be to rediscover the vital connection between the two crises: a spirituality centered in Creation.

Somewhere in the flotsam of celestial material that makes up the arms of the Milky Way is a little planet called Earth. Home to roughly seven billion people, Earth plays host to a race that is both incredibly sadistic and unspeakably noble. One facet of this dichotomy stems from a concept known as religion. Religion is a set of spiritual beliefs shared by a group of people.

People long to make sense of life; to find the key that will unlocks its mysteries and enable them to understand themselves and their place within the universe. Faced with their own fragility and death, they seek courage and comfort. Longing to develop and create, they seek inspiration. In this human quest for meaning, some take to philosophy, others to the creative arts, and others- in fact the majority of humankind-take to some form of religion. Almost every aspect of life can become the raw material out of which a religious

Humans, with our awful habits of deforestation, burning fossil fuels, and causing drainage, are ruining our earth. At first glance, global warming is good for the earth. It would undeniably prevent another ice age from occurring. On the other hand, it would also cause hurricanes, which is bad. Human actions have become the key factor of the earth’s changes.

But unlike Robert Frost’s poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have been travelling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork in the road less travelled by offers our last and only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of our earth.” This quote shows two parallel scenarios.

The term religion is coined as a particular response to dimensions of life considered sacred, as shaped by institutionalized traditions (Fisher, 2011). Religion can be associated as a group of people coming together to practice and share a feeling or doctrine of beliefs, to an individual meditating by themselves once or several times a day. Religion has become not just a practice of many people in one group, or a spiritual comfort to a singular person. One cannot simply justify what is religion just by looking at a group or a single individual. If we were to base religion off of a group, one could state that
