An introduction to energy and its relationship to climate change, this course will introduce the forms of energy and explain how they are harnessed for our use. Using concepts from math, physics, and chemistry, students will analyze energy use. This course will introduce the concept of energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) management and identify the types of jobs and roles that do this kind of work. Different financial mechanisms intended to mitigate climate change will be evaluated, and the impact of GHG on industry and commercial projects will be assessed.
