Program Description:
Jim Martin-Schramm (Religion); Sören Steding (Modern Languages & Literatures)
Students with Wind Turbine
Course Description: Why do Germany and the United Kingdom (UK) lead Europe in the development of wind, solar, biomass, and nuclear power?  How has the education of citizens about global warming and climate change undergirded key public policies to drive this energy transition?  Why do Germany and the UK disagree, however, over nuclear power, hydraulic fracturing, and reliance on coal?  We will explore these questions and others through site visits and discussions with representatives from the energy industry, government officials, local politicians, and energy activists. We will begin in Berlin and then head north to the region that hosts most of Germany’s onshore and offshore wind energy facilities and is at risk due to rising sea-levels.  The second half of the course will begin in London with a focus on UK energy and climate policy, move on to explore various initiatives near Oxford, and end in York, from which we will tour an underground coal mine and the largest biomass power plant in the world.
