Course Description: This course introduces the big questions relating to the origins and current state of the planet: climate change, environment, landscape formation, and the growth of the human population. Students explore theories and debates about how the world's physical and human systems operate. The first section investigates the system of global environmental change, specifically addressing climate variability and human impacts on the natural environment. The second section presents Earth as an evolving and dynamic planet, investigating how changes take place, the rate at which they occur, and how they have the potential to dramatically affect the way we live. Finally, the third section focuses on human-induced challenges to Earth's future. This section critically analyzes the relationships between people and their environments, with central consideration to debates on population change, resource use, and the policy contexts of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
