The recent address by Obama was both very well delivered and full of important content on the strategic direction our country needs to take. The President highlighted the importance of expanding our investments in clean technology, biotechnology, IT and education, while trimming inefficiencies in other areas of the economy with unclear outcomes such as the military. If you have not listened to this speech, I highly recommend it.

The program will prepare the next generation of interdisciplinary professionals to address the challenges of climate change and sustainable energy systems. Graduates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the science related to a changing climate and global warming, knowledge of the impacts of climate change, vulnerability of natural systems and the built environment, and methods for adaptation. Graduates will also develop a comprehension of energy production, delivery, and consumption for both traditional systems and sustainable/renewable energy alternatives.

This program is rooted in the Morton K. Blaustein Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. Oversight by the eminent faculty of this department sustains the academic integrity and excellence of the program. Courses are taught by distinguished instructors with valuable experience in the academic, public, and corporate sectors.

The program will address the management skills needed for a carbon constrained environment and help students develop an understanding of policy strategies employed at the local, state, and national level in response to climate change challenges. On an international level, graduates of the program will have an understanding of the multilateral agreements and non-US based approaches to both mitigation and adaptation to global warming.
