Science makes sense of what our physical world is. Without science we would be blind to the nuances of our human existence and how we interact with the world around us.

Science is made up of a series of experiment projects that use the scientific method to discover how things work and why they work the way they do. Science is always developing and improving. For centuries humans believed the world was flat and there mere suggestion that the earth was spherical prompted accusations of heresy. Science developed allowing for humans to understand that the earth is in fact a sphere. Which allowed us to better understand concepts of gravity and astronomy. For this reason, science is not a perfect process but rather it is constantly developing with us.

As science has developed humans have gained a better understanding of how we affect the natural around us. For example, we have discovered how light pollution disturbs migration routes for birds or how pesticide run off causes disastrous algal blooms or how greenhouse gas emissions affect our atmosphere. Without science humans would be blind to their effects on the world around them. Science is way for humans to connect with their environment

Science is also a tool used in politics. Activists use science as way to be heard by politicians. For example, the Clean Air Act was passed because scientists proved that human health and the environment were in negatively affected by air pollution. Or, for example, as Rachel Carson proved in the Silent Spring, chemicals, such as DDT, that we think are improving our lives are actually harming us and the ecosystems that surround us. Science helps humans protect themselves from themselves.

Science is the link between humans, the environment and how the two interact. Science is necessary in growth and development.
