« back to classes page
Sustainability is a buzzword capturing much attention these days. But “It’s not easy being green!”- thank you Kermit. Ongoing concerns over natural disasters and the climate are stirring up passions and action groups. What are the real issues and what can we do? Since the industrial revolution, we have been dealing with the social and environmental ramifications of the growth of technology. We will look at the role of EPA and its meshing with industry and the Department of Energy. We will also delve into the social, economic, and environmental impacts of our standard of living and energy dependence. The issues are both global and local.
