Course Description: This course looks at the current environmental crisis from the perspective of the two revolutions in humanity’s relationship with the natural world: the development of agriculture 10,000 years ago, and the development of industrial-urban society beginning 400 years ago. This provides a context for evaluating the environmental politics of the United States, other industrial nations, and multinational corporations. The course concludes with a focus on Hawai‘i and a consideration of alternative approaches. (DS)
