Peter J Wilcoxen > PAI 730 Climate Change: Science, Perception and Policy

Course Description

This course addresses climate change, one of society's most pressing issues, through multi-disciplinary exploration of the science, how the media shapes public opinion, competing views on risk and uncertainty, decision-making, costs and benefits of different policies including the Kyoto protocol, and the ethical dimensions of the choices facing societies affected by the issue. Faculty from SU and ESF in law, economics, earth science, and environmental studies will co-teach this course and bring dialog that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries. Insights gained from this course apply to other complex, highly technical environmental problems. This course is designed for students with diverse backgrounds and does not have prerequisites.
