The current assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will be examined. The course will begin by scrutinizing the scientific basis of the assessment. Subsequently, regional and global impact projections will be examined. The technological options will be examined with respect to research and capitalization priorities, both corporate and governmental. Finally, the possibilities for novel governance structures based on a scientific understanding will be examined. Weekly critical presentations of the source material will be required. The course will culminate in the preparation, presentation, and refinement of a term paper of the student's choosing.
