Week 2 Reflection This week I have learned a great deal about the way the earth renews itself. We owe everything that the earth offers to plate tectonics in my opinion. The lack of this function would cause the world to be much different than it is today. We would see the earth lacking mountain ranges, ocean basins, continents, and chains of islands like the Hawaiian Islands. The earth would cease to renew itself and therefore everything we set foot on would be tremendously old compared to what Plate tectonics do by renewing the crust. I am also going to hypothesize that our weather would be more constant and not change as much as it does with plate tectonics. Therefore, we could all potentially live on a huge warm tropical island like Hawaii. I have learned a lot more about minerals this week than I thought possible. I knew that minerals from the earth were used in things that we humans use every day, I just did not understand the depth of how much we rely on what the earth provides us to survive.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
