Global warming is in the news quite a bit lately. It is often quoted that 97% of climatologists not only believe global warming is occurring, but human activity is the primary cause of this warming. Yet many people, including politicians, refuse to believe that global warming is occurring and/or that human activity is the primary cause of that warming. Everyone needs to make up their own mind on global warming, but that decision needs to be based on scientific fact and reasoning, not on the opinion of a politician or radio show personality. In this session, we will examine the science behind the greenhouse effect and global warming. We will look at how human activity has changed the gaseous composition of our atmosphere and how those changes will affect the Earth’s climate.

The fact that people die still remains a taboo topic of discussion in our contemporary society.

This is the first of a two-part series. In part one we will provide an introduction to the major issues regarding the end of life that concerns us today.

From the quality of roads and public universities to environmental protection and social welfare benefits, the laws and regulations created by state government impact the lives of their citizens on a daily basis. While the process of creating legislation at the federal level has commonly been criticized for the outsized role of interest groups, money and hyper-partisanship, the critiques are increasingly leveled against state houses, as well. In particular, groups such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the State Innovation Exchange (SiX) have repeatedly been cited for their excessive influence on state legislation. This course will examine the role of interest groups in state governments and, specifically, the degree to which explicitly partisan groups have changed the process and content of state public policymaking.
