The field of environmental statistics is one of rapid growth at the moment. Environmental decision-making is prevalent in much of the world, and politicians and other decision makers are requesting new tools for understanding the state of the environment. In this paper, three case studies involving water pollution, air pollution, and climate change assessment are presented, together with brief descriptions of some other areas of environmental statistics. A discussion of future directions of the field concludes the paper.
