Course Description Using books, articles, and essays from the 19th century to today, we will explore relationships among the history, economics, and biogeochemistry of energy and climate change.  We will discuss how we have reached our current global climate over both human and geologic timescales, and we will examine what lies before us in the twenty-first century and beyond.  What are the economic, social, scientific, and technological challenges?  What are the implications of inaction? Readings will include works by Svante Arrhenius, Rachel Carson, Sylvia Earle, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Friedman, David Goodstein, Charles Lyell, John McPhee, Donella Meadows, and Noel Perrin.
