PWR 2KM: Writing & Rhetoric 2: A Planet on the Edge: The Rhetoric of Sustainable Energy

Prerequisite: PWR 1. Sea-level rise, the halting of major ocean circulatory currents, outbreaks of superstorms leading to floods and droughts - can an energy revolution still save a planet on the edge? This class explores the intricacies of sustainable energy, focusing on the myths, slogans, and rhetorical narratives that surround these debates. For example, is environmentalism inherently at odds with economic prosperity? Does living an environmentally conscious lifestyle require personal sacrifice and suffering? How does rhetorical framing affect the research, implementation, and public perception of new technologies in the field of sustainable energy?
