|PS 297_H - Environmental Politics-Honors|
This course focuses on current environmental problems, alternative frameworks for understanding these problems, and appropriate political responses. Among the problems covered are overpopulation, economic globalization, ozone depletion, the greenhouse effect, bio-colonization, and the depletion of renewable and non-renewable resources. Alternative frameworks considered include the philosophical visions of Deep Ecology and Gaia. These frameworks are used to investigate possible ways to create sustainable economic, political and social systems. Finally, the course focuses on grass roots politics, including groups and social movements actively seeking to promote environmental and social justice. This honors class delves deeper into course topics and requires a high level of student motivation; the pace may be faster than non-honors courses. WR 121-readiness (score of at least 96 on the sentence-skills placement test) recommended. See www.lanecc.edu/honors for information.
