COURSE: Energy and Resources Group 190/290
COURSE TITLE: Seminar in Energy, Environment, Development and Security Issues: “California Water”
TIME: Tuesday, Thursday, 12-4pm
SESSION DATES: 07/02-08/10/18
“California Water” – The story of water development in California provides compelling examples of water politics, the social and environmental consequences of redistributing water, and the relationships between water uses, energy, and climate. This course provides the historical, scientific, legal, institutional, and economic background needed to understand the social and ecological challenges of providing water for California’s growing population, agricultural economy, and other uses – all of which are made more complex by climate change.
