    Climate Change and Clean Energy (21754). 3 units. This course will examine the scientific, economic, legal, political, institutional, and historic underpinnings of climate change and the related policy challenge of developing the energy system needed to support a prosperous and sustainable modern society. Particular attention will be given to analyzing the existing framework of treaties, law, regulations, and policy -- and the incentives they have created -- which have done little over the past several decades to change the world’s trajectory with regard to the build-up of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. What would a twenty-first-century policy framework that is designed to deliver a sustainable energy future and a successful response to climate change look like? How would such a framework address issues of equity? How might incentives be structured to engage the business community and deliver the innovation needed in many domains? While designed as a lecture course, class sessions will be highly interactive. Also F&ES 840b. Scheduled examination or paper option. D. C. Esty.

    Note: This course will meet on the Forestry and Environmental Studies calendar.
