Climate change is here. As countries across the globe come to terms with this new reality, it is more important than ever that we-as political scientists-study how best to both mitigate emissions and adapt to our warming world. Therefore, in this seminar-style course we will explore the various national policies and international efforts in place today to reduce the effects of climate change. We will also cover topics such as strategic games, natural disasters, public opinion, and more. Ultimately, by comparing climate policy successes (or failures) across various countries, students in the course will be able to write their own policy proposal for a country of their choice by the end of the semester.
