The impacts of climate change disproportionally affect countries that have contributed the least to atmospheric greenhouse gas loading. Further, within all countries the impacts of climate change disproportionally affect the poor and ethnic minorities. This course will review the basis for the overwhelming scientific consensus that concludes that ongoing warming is not natural, and will focus on the degree to which the impacts of global warming affect underdeveloped countries. Students will prepare and submit policy briefs to policy makers at the federal, state, and/or local level.
