Climate and Global Change part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
The objective of this course is to analyze the issue of global warming from multiple perspectives, including science, policy, law, and economics, with a particular emphasis on critical reading and writing skills. We begin the course by studying the science of climate change and its representation in both peer-reviewed and popular literature, and then shift to focus on the international and national responses to climate change through an analysis of policy, law, and economics. Assessment is based on five short research papers, one term paper, in-class quizzes, documentary film response papers, and class participation.
