ENVS 304 Energy and the Environment: Iceland 3.0 Credits

This course studies how an economy and culture changes when it switches from fossil to alternative energy. In the last 30 years Iceland has switched from a poor country fueled by fossil fuels to one of the wealthiest nations in Europe, with only 20 percent of its energy coming from fossil fuels. In this class students will synthesize data/knowledge into flow diagrams of the economy of Iceland and then use the synthesis to understand the impacts of energy development and extraction on the environment and society.
