Course detail: OSH139 - Climate Change: What Is the Evidence and What Does It Mean for the Little Guy?
There is near certainty among scientists that humans are affecting the climate, and not necessarily in a good way. The evidence of climate change is mounting each year. This course will review that evidence and delve into what the socio-economic impact could be. We'll examine how climate change would impact such industries as health care, agriculture (including livestock, forestry and fisheries), energy, insurance and tourism. Also, we will explore how climate change affects different regions of the globe and how it could cause income inequities between and within countries.
