GEO 175 - Global Sustainability


A description of basic sustainability concepts starting with household recycling, energy conservation, weatherization, renewable energy, green roofs and then moving into regional sustainability efforts such as mass transportation, updated electrical grids and smart metering of electrical utilities. Global sustainability relies on local and regional efforts while global politics is often based on the need to obtain energy or goods that may be in short supply. The course offers a broad overview of sustainable options for human societies around the world. This course is structured as a science course for non-science majors, but science majors are welcome too.
