Energy Justice: Local To Global Perspectives
As global patterns of energy use often remain hidden or go undiscussed, it is important to investigate the social and environmental justice implications. In this class, students examine case students to explore real-world controversies over energy extraction and use. Some questions this course considers are who benefits most from current energy systems? Who pays for it? How do climate change policies affect global energy patterns and use? How does political and economic power drive the conversation and energy policies around the world? In addition to exploring the existing problems, students will consider the possibilities for creating more just and sustainable energy systems.
