Actually, I didn't have a deep understanding of environmental science before taking this course. In many cases, my understanding was only limited to some roadside publicity and some web pages that I may not necessarily see. I was naive enough to think that environmental science was not complicated, that it was just a matter of finding and solving problems. However, after taking this course, I found that this course is not what I imagined. Environmental science can also be profound and meaningful. For those simple problems (such as forest fires and overconsumption), they are not only related to the environmental level, but also directly affect the social level. All the problems and impediments come together to make it really difficult to actually operate. I think I've benefited a lot just from learning this aspect. Most importantly, group work and class discussions have taught me what practical actions are to solve these problems. Everything is very realistic, not idealistic, and not empty talk.
Thank you very much Kai and Dana for letting me learn this, and I think I will carry this understanding and behavior through to the end.
