ADBI 1128 Sustainability Science (Fall: 4 )
Through technology and our growing population, humans are altering the planet at rates much faster than Earth can adjust to the changes. The health of the planet and of its human population are inevitably intertwined. In this course we'll explore areas where the human species is causing long-term alteration to the Earth's systems by consuming and impairing our planet's natural resources. We will look at the problems we face in managing limited resources in a technological age and rapidly growing world, the natural processes with which we interact, the wastes we generate, and the pros and cons of various potential solutions to these problems. We'll survey issues in that are critical to the future of humanity.
