The Environmentalist might say that the human race is despoiling the planet but if you look at the history and geology of the planet since its creation, it is not always a one-way process. This course aims to provide a scientific background to some natural events, both geological and historical, that have affected the human race and the biosphere. You will also discuss the influence that mankind is now having on the planet's environment. The intention will be to provide a better understanding of factors influencing these events, their causes and possible future impacts.
