The climate is changing at an unprecedented rate, with implications for human well-being around the world. This course will explore how different energy sectors (including coal, oil, and natural gas) contribute to climate change. We will discuss and analyze the incentives faced and decision-making by consumers and firms. We'll delve into theories of when and how government can or should regulate these sectors.
