IMPORTANCE OF EARTH SCIENCE STORY: WHY WE STUDY ROCKS

We study rocks for about ten thousand years. From the time we started forming our society we are using rocks as our first tools. 

Moreover our culture and lifestyle is affected by rocks: the first paints, the first building materials, all came from rocks.

So rocks were from the start dominant resources for us and in extent they are also affecting our health. 

We study rocks to learn how Earth affects our health

Geologists study rocks because they affect our health. Hence Earth Science is the story of how Earth affects our health. 

Moreover rocks are also the raw materials for many of the products we use in our daily life.  Yet we may not realize our dependence on rocks and in extent on the environment.
