About this course:

The course provides a better understanding of how future energy solutions—both power and transportation—address climate change and environmental protection from a policy standpoint. Instructors broadly discuss climate change, including greenhouse gas emissions, their impacts, and policy actions to reduce such impacts. The course also briefly discusses interrelationships among greenhouse gases, environmental quality, public health, energy security, and long-term sustainability. Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to better analyze, plan, and advise on future actions in response to new and evolving federal, state, and local programs and policies in this area.
