Earth is facing devastating environmental problems, such as global warming, climate change, depletion of natural resources, and higher levels of air, water and land pollution. The effects of these largely human-made problems are becoming increasingly obvious through extreme weather events, warmer temperatures, increased water scarcity, loss of biodiversity and harm to human health. We all have a responsibility to protect our Earth.
This course focuses solely on the environmental concerns our Earth is facing using the most up-to-date information and statistics from NASA, WWF, EPA, National Geographic, and the IPCC. Information and advice on what you can do to be more resource-efficient and reduce, reuse and recycle waste can be found in our Resource Efficiency course.
