Energy and the Environment
It’s been said that you can’t really know where you are going until you know where you have been. Fossil fuels generated the standard of living presently enjoyed by developed nations; however, the policies and practices that led to their proliferation also rendered serious harm to the environment and emitted unprecedented levels of greenhouse gases that are expediting changes to the climate. Business as usual is no longer sustainable. In this course, students will develop a foundation from which to chart an environmentally conscious path toward decarbonizing the energy sector.
