DESCRIPTION

Please visit our website for more information. This program examines the interconnections between the economics, politics, geography, and science of climate change and its effects on human society. You will learn about the varied impacts of climate change — extreme weather, desertification, ocean acidification, melting glaciers, rising sea levels, loss of biodiversity, and dangerous social upheavals — and will be encouraged to think seriously about realistic solutions. Key Questions: How is climate change impacting regions differently? How are people adapting to these changes? What are the appropriate roles of government, business, social movements, and individuals in addressing this multifaceted crisis? Which technologies and traditional forms of local knowledge can realistically meet humanity’s need for energy in a sustainable way? What are the economic interests and institutional arrangements that prevent us from more effectively addressing the climate crisis?
