Environmental science on the other end is a large academic field that incorporates both physical systems, biological relations and informational sciences in studying the environment and in seeking solutions to environmental problems. It provides an integrated and quantitative approach that cuts across all disciplinary studies of environmental systems. Environmental studies involve deeply the social sciences perspective in understanding human interrelations, views and policy measures towards the environment (Wapner, 1996).
While both Environmental science and environmental activism preoccupies trying to achieve the common goal of spreading the word about conservation and general improvement of the environment there is little difference separating the two. Environmental scientists utilize facts from studies to support the courses of action they propose viable while Environmentalists uses manipulated statistics to gain sympathy and support for their ideologies. An individual can therefore vaguely separate the two but cannot participate in both due to the difference in their operation technicalities. Environmental Activism versus Environmental Science.
