ENVS 295 Climate Impacts on Peoples of the Far North

Across the North, climate change is happening at an accelerated rate. The hole in the ozone layer, the waning of Arctic Sea ice, the disappearance of permafrost, the release of methane from peat bogs – not only are these indicators of climate change, but they are also multipliers of that process. Writing-intensive and research-based, this course considers the impacts of climate change from a human perspective, with a special emphasis on indigenous peoples in the North, including human adaptations, community capacity for change, and regional cooperation.
