Going Green in The Anthropocene

Class size 7-17 students

Location: Jewett 291

This course will deal with the climate change crisis, with an emphasis on economic, technological, and governmental policy changes necessary to avert dangers to humanity posed by a warming planet. We will examine proposals and critiques of the “Green New Deal,” and look at interesting methods which promise to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The class is conducted in a seminar fashion which encourages discussion; textbooks are furnished. We will clarify the significance of the term “Anthropocene.” My previous course on this topic is not a prerequisite, but your interest and concern about the significance of this topic is. Classroom
