NAT306 - The Fate of the Earth

Globally, the quality of the environment is being eroded at an accelerating rate. The crisis has become so visible that the general public is responding. But, are short term political systems capable of responding to complex, long term problems and are economic systems based on growth, workable in a finite world? This course will introduce some of the major threats to environmental quality on both the global and local levels. Cultural causes of the crisis, possible consequences, and alternatives will be discussed.
