Zakres tematów:

- Technology and climate change. Technology has the capacity to contribute enormously to mitigating climate change. This section of the course will consider how to critically evaluate different mitigation strategies. This section will also look at the possibility of deploying geoengineering in response to climate change, including solar radiation management and carbon capture and storage. Students will be encouraged to critically evaluate geoengineering proposals.

- Technology and agriculture. Technology has repeatedly transformed food production and delivery systems. This course will examine emerging agricultural technologies – such as genetically modified organisms and synthetic meat production – and discuss whether or not they should be supported.

- Technology and conservation. Conservation biologists and ecosystem managers are increasingly interested in deploying biotechnology in conservation efforts. This section of the course will study and evaluate proposed applications, including cloning, deextinction, and gene drives.

- Philosophy of technology. Throughout the course students will be exposed to different theories and critical perspectives in the philosophy of technology that can be applied to help analyze and evaluate environmental technologies and their applications.
