TR 09:40 am-11:10 am MARKIM 303 Margot Higgins
*First day attendance required; attendance is required on several bicycle field trips that will extend beyond the regularly scheduled T/TH meeting time into the community meeting time.* This course will present a critical history and politics of bicycling from local, regional, and national perspectives. There has been a recent resurgence of bicycle riding in many urban settings. What has transformed bicycle advocacy from being a fringe political movement to one that now influences mainstream shapers of urban space? How can bicycling integrate with or replace an auto-centric society? We will examine how cities with and with out a historical presence of cycling have promoted cycling programs, infrastructure and bicycle culture. What have been the central obstacles that city planners and activists have faced? Who benefits from improved cycling and which people are left out? This course will include lessons on how to make city cycling more feasible and safe (even in Minnesota winters), guest lecturers, reading responses, short homework assignments, an introduction to research methods, proposal writing, and group projects. Counts for social science general distribution credit.

ENVI 294-01  Climate Change: Science, Economics, and Policy
TR 09:40 am-11:10 am OLRI 301 Bradtmiller, West
*Cross-listed with ECON 294-01; first day of attendance required; ACTC students may register on the first day of class with the permission of the instructor* The causes and effects of climate change are inextricably linked with the global economy. The combustion of fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, which traps energy near Earth’s surface and leads to warmer average global temperatures. The combustion of fossil fuels also forms the backbone of the modern economy, fueling cars, power plants, and everything in between. This team-taught course will provide a framework in which to consider the costs and benefits of fossil fuel consumption in the present, but also over the coming decades and centuries. We will use concepts from climate science and environmental economics to help evaluate existing and proposed policy interventions designed to reduce fossil fuel consumption, and we will similarly consider possible technological solutions to slow or even reverse climate change. We will spend a significant amount of time exploring how the preceding topics factor into Integrated Assessment Models. Governments and NGOs use these models to combine scientific and socioeconomic information in order to predict the outcomes of various climate and policy scenarios. These are the state of the art in climate science, economics and policy; students will be exposed to several of the most commonly used models and to research from their critics. We hope to attract a diverse group of students with varying academic interests; the only prerequisite for this course is ECON 119: Principles of Economics. Students registering for the course as ECON 294 will receive credit toward the general distribution requirement in social sciences; those registering for ENVI 294 will receive credit towards the natural science requirement. The course counts as a 200A course in the economics major.
