Unit 1. Environmental philosophy. Is "sustainability" still possible? -- Are there limits to growth? -- Should we be pricing ecosystem services? -- Unit 2. Principles versus politics. Does designating "wild lands" harm rural economies? -- Does extensive endangered species act litigation threaten species recovery, job creation, and socioeconomic growth? -- Should environmental regulations be able to limit property rights? -- Can "green" marketing claims be believed? -- Unit 3. Energy issues. Can we reduce carbon emissions enough to limit global warming? -- Do we need research guidelines for geoengineering? -- Should we continue to rely on fossil fuels? -- Do the benefits of biofuels exceed their costs? -- Unit 4. Food and population. Do we have a population problem? -- Does commercial fishing have a future? -- Does the world need high-tech agriculture? -- Do genetically modified crops cause farmer suicides? -- Unit 5. Hazardous releases. Should society limit carbon dioxide emissions by power plants? -- Is the fracking industry adequately regulated for public safety? -- Do we need new regulations for synthetic biology? -- Should genetically engineered mosquitoes be released into the environment to fight diseases? -- Do current TSCA reform efforts adequately address the need to protect public health from industrial chemicals? -- Is the process of decommissioning nuclear reactors sound?
