Today, the environment has become one of the most pressing issues on the political agenda. Politicians are forced by many constituents to take a stand on environmental issues, risking electoral consequences if they do not. Is that fair? Do the arguments and positions of environmentalists need to be questioned? This course surveys the association between environmentalism and politics, seeking to inform students of the debates about the environment and to examine several of the associated political themes as well as the main analytical, legal, and ethical approaches used in creating environmental policy.
