ECON 306    Environmental Economics    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
General Education: AA/AS Area V(b)
Course Transferable to UC/CSU, Green Course Green Course
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course focuses on the application of economic principles to help understand and manage the relationship between humans and the environment. The central theme is that there are competing demands for our limited natural resources, including the waste assimilation capacity of the environment, necessitating that difficult choices be made regarding how those resources are used. The course illustrates how resources are allocated in a market economy, potential problems from a social perspective with that allocation, and alternative solutions for reallocating resources to achieve more socially desirable outcomes. Issues such as efficiency and externality, benefit-cost analysis, and alternative policy instruments for pollution control are examined. Topics related to global warming, California water resources, and other current environmental policy issues will be discussed as time permits.

This course is a 1-unit course that investigates the physical geography of Yosemite National Park (YNP) in winter using snowshoes. The course format includes two class meetings and a weekend field trip to YNP. Topics to be discussed include: geologic origin and glacial geomorphology of Yosemite; the nature of winter as well as plant, animal, and human adaptations to life in the cold; the nature of snow & ice (snow pack metamorphism); basic mountain weather and climate; field identification of plants and animals; and an introduction to techniques for safe navigation using map, compass, and Global Positioning System (GPS) units.
Transportation and backcountry navigation equipment (compass and GPS units) will be provided. Students must pay for shared overnight accommodation in YNP, food, and snowshoe rental (if necessary). Day-time snowshoe "hikes" will average 3-8 miles over easy-to-moderate terrain. Participants should be in good physical condition but need not have previous snowshoeing experience. This class is popular so early registration is advised (wait-listed students are strongly encouraged to attend the first class meeting).
