The course will explore the difficult and controversial issues specific to Minnesota, but with an understanding of the global and historical context from which they arose. Other topics studied include environmental economics and Minnesota’s energy sector and extractive industries, water quality and Minnesota’s unique relationship with water, our agricultural sector and its impact on the environment, and unique climate change impacts in the upper Midwest. Each topic will be overlain with an awareness and context that eleven Native Nations share the geography with Minnesota.
