MJ 647 The Environment and Sustainability (Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: MJ 156 or equivalent
Undergraduates need prior approval of professor. Attendance is mandatory unless absence is excused in advance.
There is widespread consensus that Planet Earth cannot easily support many of the demands upon its resources and structures being imposed upon it by the present population of the world. This state of disequilibrium promises to become even worse as population totals rise significantly in most countries. The emphasis in this course will be upon methods used for preserving and improving sustainability within the U.S. and worldwide. Fundamentals of Environmental Law, International Law and Administrative Law will be stressed. Cost estimates will be examined closely. Among subject matters to be studied are oil, water, wind, air, and carbon sequestration.
