An examination of the need for sustainability in our use of energy resources. We will discuss the problems with dependence on non-renewable fossil fuels, including energy insecurity, air pollution, and global warming. Alternatives to be explored include: conservation, solar energy, wind power, hydropower, biomass, and hydrogen fuel cells. Students will conduct personal energy audits and cost-benefit analyses. Additionally, environmental, science, and economic data will be analyzed and “energy in the news” articles will be used to highlight developments in this rapidly changing field.
