The state of the air, water, and soil climate change, habitat conversion, invasive species, biodiversity decline, deforestation, overfishing, and many other environmental issues are at the core of most of our pressing economic, social, political and human health concerns. This course examines the roots of the modern environmental crisis, reviewing the most current environmental issues and the underlying science for a critical look at how societies have interacted with the natural environment past and present and requirements for a sustainable future. The course consists of small group discussions, readings and case studies.
