This class will explore the science behind contemporary issues such as global warming and forms of pollution such as urban aerosols, lead in drinking water, the global mercury cycle, endocrine disrupting organics, plastics, and other issues. Most of the class time will be devoted to discussion of articles from the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Each class session will focus on a particular issue, and together we will work through around 10 relevant papers per class session.
