GEG 266 Environmental Ethics
(Also PHL 266)
4 hours; 4 credits
This course provides a critical forum to examine the roots and results of our attitudes toward the environment. How should we view the apparent connections between pollution, economic development, and poverty; what (if anything) do we owe future generations; how should we consider non-human animals in the environment; is there justice or injustice in environmental civil disobedience? The course will draw on issues related to philosophy, geography, biology, economics, geology, and political science; and will challenge the exercise of global consciousness in "real-world" terms. For Geography majors, this is designated as an environmental course.
