Environmental problems are a tangled web of scientific, political, historical, social, economic, legal and psychological factors. This seminar will unravel the complexity of the challenging world of environmental problems by examining several conflicts through these different disciplinary lenses. The conflict over reintroduction of wolves to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the global climate change debate, and the conflict between fishermen and scientists over New England’s declining cod fishery will be examined in detail. Other current conflicts will be discussed including oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, preservation of endangered grizzly bears and bowhead whales, and rock climbing disputes at Native American sacred sites.
