ES 4680 - Energy and the Environment


This course explores the basic principles behind the use of energy. It covers crucial environmental questions such as global warming, municipal solid waste, and the socio‐economic and environmental tradeoffs that must be made to support life on earth. The course also examines different aspects of each energy resource, including the principles involved and the environmental and economic consequences of its use. We will seek to integrate the complex questions of energy policy and possible energy strategies for the next century and beyond. Sustainability is a central theme. Offered every other Fall.
