Humans are part of the biosphere, a truth as certain as our individual deaths, and yet many of our actions individually and collectively seem to imply that life's goals are attainable independent of our linkages to the rest of nature. To achieve a sustainable environment for ourselves and for future generations, actions based on realistic private views and public policies are necessary. This course is an inquiry into alternative views of the environment that have been used to find value in nature, and to draw sustenance, wealth, and power from nature. The failures and conflicts that abound in these efforts have accumulated to a degree that they now pose global threats. Topics addressed include limits to growth, cross-cultural conflicts over means for sustenance, market failures, regulatory inadequacies, and the consequences of accelerating technological change. Interdisciplinary and international perspectives are presented. We seek pragmatic approaches for solutions to these problems that would be of value to urban and regional planning students, natural resources students, and others interested in environmental policy.
