BIOL 1030 - Environmental Issues and Solutions
This course examines the major environmental issues facing the world including pollution, population growth, soil erosion, destruction of forests and other natural areas, climate changes and other environmental impacts induced by human activity. It introduces a wide spectrum of viewpoints on what constitutes an environmental problem, as well as the controversies about appropriate remedial measures. The course analyzes problems and emphasizes the successful search for solutions. It develops a number of themes across a broad range of environmental issues including sustainability, the global economy, the global environment, short-term versus long-term gains, and the trade-off involved in balancing environmental problems and solutions. This non-laboratory course is intended for non-science majors. Because of similarities in content, students who have taken BIOL 1170 Ecology and Environmental Biology should not take this course.
