It takes place at a time when increasing recognition of the problem is maturing into a struggle to identify and create the legal and policy elements necessary to promote and ensure solutions. Most classes will feature conversations with nationally recognized scholars and practitioners. Grading will be based upon a 10-page final paper that compares and contrasts the solutions offered by each of the expert speakers and synthesizes those recommendations into a proposed comprehensive energy strategy for the United States.This course addresses the fundamental crisis in which growing energy demands are threatening the buffering capacity of our global atmosphere, while also producing the greatest emissions of most primary pollutants, and the struggle to identify and create the legal elements necessary to promote and ensure solutions.America’s Energy CrisisGP0|#9e96459a-64af-416b-93fb-c5459be64d5c;L0|#09e96459a-64af-416b-93fb-c5459be64d5c|ELC Summer Session;GTSet|#cbbd7cb7-f9db-41d7-8603-54518e246b51GP0|#bbf30ea9-f0ee-439f-8edf-c51d39ce0c79;L0|#0bbf30ea9-f0ee-439f-8edf-c51d39ce0c79|Environmental;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#02a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69;L0|#002a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69|Lecture;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b5669 AM - Noon133
