As long as humans have existed, they have been intervening in nature: first as hunters and gatherers and later as farmers and herdsmen and ultimately by building cities, roads, power stations and factories.

At the same time the world's population grew and continues to grow, and more and more people attained the level of prosperity that results in the consumption of large quantities of energy and raw materials and the production of waste and contaminents.

The Environmental Science exhibition takes visitors on a tour, starting with History, showing the roots and development of environmental science, and proceeding to Growth, which addresses the causes of pollution, Water, where water pollution is examined. A final chapter is dedicated to the global effects of pollution of the Earth's atmosphere (Air) and climate change (Climate).
