ENERGY AND TEACHING GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE

A. McGowan

The New School (UNITED STATES)
Although it is true that many in the global population are now somewhat willing to say that extreme weather is due to global climate change, and that in general global climate change is a real problem, there still is a gap between the opinion of the experts and the opinions of the general public. Among environmentalists, therefore, there is a rather large obligation to educate as many students as we can, particularly those who are not environmental majors and who will graduate to be doctors, lawyers, and other professionals; members of the general public who will play large roles in shaping public opinion. Those of us in universities and colleges have an important opportunity to design and teach courses for a general education student body that expose the reality of climate change. The paper will examine three courses that accomplish that goal in innovative ways that attract many students.
