Course Number: GEOS2241
Course Description: The UNSW Peak Carbon: Climate Change and Energy Policy (GEOS2241) course provides insight into one of the most important policy changes confronting Australia and the world today: climate change. This course will give you an understanding of the fundamentals of the relationship between energy policy and climate change at both the domestic and international level. This course will cover the ethics and international inequality around climate impacts and energy policy, consumption capitalism and the circular economy. We will explore zero and negative carbon technologies and new ways to store energy. We will focus on the transport and building sectors to see what we can do differently, and via an analysis of subsidies, cost curves and employment policies understand what we must do domestically to make significant change fast.
