Energy is the biggest industry on the planet - come and find out its secrets! Developed in collaboration with The New York Times science writer Matt Wald, this course will cover the most pressing concerns regarding energy resources and policies. Kammen’s lectures will cover our energy system and climate change, renewable energy, and energy policy and politics. Other Berkeley faculty members will address nuclear power, alternatives to gasoline, and the power grid. The course will include an online component with discussion, readings, and links to the most up to date material to be discussed at the United Nations Climate Change Conference this December in Copenhagen.
