GEOLSCI 20: Learn the (geo)science behind the environmental (in)justice concepts

For over almost a century, geoscientists have been studying Earth with the goal of identifying attributes of potentially habitable planets in the Universe. Turning our gaze homeward, we discover that our own planet is more or less habitable for humans, depending on their socio-economic status, race, and ethnicity. In this course, you will learn the scientific fundamentals behind the main topics often discussed surrounding environmental justice topics with a focus on geoscience concepts and environmental justice issues in the United States.
