LSTU-L 290 Labor & Global Warming, 3 cr hrs. Class number 12444
Second Summer. 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.
