Today we see this logic reflected in the way that that global science is subdivided into the categories of air, land, and water. Thus, the relevance of a science of global issues is not merely of academic interest. The tide of environmental concern, a vision of limits to growth, and a desire for sustainability have fostered an unprecedented interest in global sciences.
