Course Summary

Perhaps the greatest challenge facing humankind is anthropogenic climate change, the rapid warming of the earth’s temperature driven by the consumption of fossil-fuels and emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. In this course you will investigate the economic consequences of both action and inaction on climate change, investigating case studies on a local, national, and international scale. You will examine the political challenges faced by national governments and international organisations in tackling global emissions, and assess the impact of treaties such as the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement.

An important aspect of climate change is that some of those least responsible for emissions are likely to suffer the greatest impact from rising temperatures, and in this course you will explore this issue through the lenses of climate ethics and environmental justice. With an interdisciplinary approach incorporating politics, philosophy, and economics this course will allow you a deep understanding of this vitally important global challenge.
