Humans have always impacted the environments we live in. Yet we now realize that our actions have worldwide as well as localized implications; ?the act of burning fossil fuels has made this altogether clear. In this course, we?ll use the lens of climate change to examine and contrast the historic ?and contemporary concerns that encompass the study of humans in the landscape. Our examination will employ a systems perspective and an integrative ?approach; we?ll think about this grand challenge by studying it across scales and by drawing on the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities. ?By the end of the course, students will have placed climate change at the center of their thinking about the environment and have gained skills and ?perspectives that are applicable to other environmental concerns.
