PHYS 20333 - Section 01: Earth Focus (CRN 18353)

Course Description:
Earth Focus will begin with a history of the "origin" of the Universe. We will develop a picture of how, when and where the elements that compose our universe and in particular, the planets (and Earth), were created and how they got to the present state that allows life to exist on the Earth. The course will describe our unique place in nature. The goal will be to discuss how human activities (the production of the greenhouse gases) may/or may not be contributing to an increase in average global temperatures. Notre Dame students will be faced with numerous environmental issues throughout their lives and this course will provide a basis for intelligent and knowledgeable decisions in the future. The course will include a discussion of the sustainability of our energy situation as well as a discussion of alternative technologies that might be implemented in the future.
