and climate change affect labor and how does labor affect global
warming? In this course we will review what global warming and
climate change are, and what causes them. We will learn about the
Kyoto Treaty and why the U.S. is not a party to it, and explore the
politics of global warming in the U.S. and internationally. How does
environmental justice fit in? Will controlling global warming cost
jobs? Students will have the opportunity to look at their own
contributions to global warming, and to discuss where the solutions
lie, and with whom. Instructor: Lin Kaatz Chary.
