|Faculty:||McGill School of Environment|
|Field of Study:||Economics, General
|Description:||The resources necessary for human society are extracted from the Earth, used as raw materials in our factories and refineries, and then returned to the Earth as waste. Human society is dependent upon geological processes and the resources they produce. Our use of resources creates waste, and geologic processes determine the fate of wastes in the environment. Understanding Earth’s geologic processes provides us with the knowledge to mitigate many of our society’s environmental impacts due to resource extraction and waste disposal.
This knowledge is not always enough because economics in society often plays a controlling role in how we use and abuse our environment. Economics frequently affects what energy sources power our society and how our wastes are treated. Economics also contributes to our understanding of how we value Earth’s environment. Earth sciences and economics are essential for our understanding of the many mechanisms that affect Earth’s environment.
