EARTH 126Z: Hard Earth: The Interconnected Impacts of Global Climate Change (CEE 126Z)

The COVID crisis makes one thing clear: society is ill-equipped to deal with disasters that do not respect borders and can cripple social and economic systems. Climate change, though radically different from a virus, similarly is a global threat. This class will feature virtual biweekly talks by four graduate students whose research probes a changing climate's already-occurring impacts on livelihoods, jobs, food, and social safety nets around the world. In the weeks in between the talks, we will hold a group discussion to explore how we can, as a global society, re-imagine our response to disaster.
