LSTU-L 390 Labor and Global Warming 3 cr hrs; Class Number 13237.
How do global warming 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:
