Environment Earth: Environment and Energy (3) Examination of climate change and energy issues.
EARTH 100H Environment Earth: Environment and Energy (3)
In this course, students will be asked to investigate the natural processes that affect the Earth’s climate and their effects on Life on Earth. Once a fundamental understanding of natural processes is developed, then an examination of the anthropogenic atmospheric changes covers the increases in greenhouse gases mainly due to fossil fuel use and agriculture. After discussing the potential environmental and economic impacts of increased greenhouse gases on Man and Nature, the major energy sources will be studied for their potential to meet increasing energy needs and their possible ability to mitigate climate change.
