Green Energy or Greenwashing?: Costs and Benefits of the Green Energy Transition

Thursday, December 8, 2022 @ 12:30pm
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at FAU, Boca Raton

Course will examine the benefits of transitioning to green energy, i.e., air and water pollution and greenhouse gas reduction, in comparison to environmental costs of the green energy transition, e.g., mining and impacts on wildlife, and implementation methods that reduce those costs. Instruction will include student participation to identify costs and benefits, their relative importance, and mitigation measures, as well as PowerPoint presentation of research concerning the issues and scientifically supported conclusions. Objectives are to increase awareness concerning the tradeoffs of the green energy transition and practices and policies that can mitigate and reduce potential impacts on the environment and wildlife. Outcomes include citizens making informed decisions as consumers and at the voting booth. This event is also available virtually.
