    I'd suggest picking the one you're most interested in - geology or environmental sustainability. I personally did my EPQ on the theories for the extinction of the dinosaurs to find out which one was the most likely

    Well there are an awful lot of controversies in Geology but some current examples are the debate surrounding whether we've entered the Anthropocene, what actually caused the K-Pg mass extinction and what role the Ediacaran biota played in the emergence of complex multicellular life?

    Third year geologist at uni here!
    Not sure how much knowledge you have on geology but if you were interested in structural geology there are still many active debates. For example how low angle normal faults form, or the details surrounding thrust sheets and faults. This may be too complex if this is A level project?
