ENVR 235 - Global Climate Change


CR: 3
Prerequisite: ENVR 128. Climate change is a hot topic on social media and at the dinner table. What exactly is climate change and what are its causes? How do humans interact with the climate system? Why is climate change such a contested issue in the U.S.? This course will examine the dynamic roles that science, politics, and economics play in environmental decision-making both in the U.S. and abroad. We will focus on the scientific explanations for current and past climate, its representation in both scientific and popular literature, predictions of future climate change, and possible responses and solutions.
