The principle objective of this note is to familiarize students with some of the major debates surrounding the relationship between globalization (expansion of international trade and investment) and the natural environment. It offers the chance for students to learn about the Mexican-U.S. border situation and to consider both the causes of and possible solutions to the serious and complex pollution problem in the region.
