IGA 411. The Energy-Climate Challenge

The greatest challenge at the intersection of science, technology, and public policy in the 21st century has arisen because society is getting 80 percent of the massive quantities of energy it needs using fuels and technologies that are disrupting global climate and the array of environmental goods and services that depend on it. This course will examine the character and magnitude of this challenge and the policy choices germane to meeting it, introducing and applying relevant concepts from environmental science, energy-technology assessment, policy design, and domestic and global politics.

Notes:  Students who have taken IGA-410 "Energy Policy: Technologies, Systems, and Markets" may not also take IGA-411 for credit.
