This course is about the science of climate change. It is designed to give students a firm understanding of the scientific issues that underlie climate change, seeking only to educate. As such, it presents evidence for what has become an overwhelming scientific consensus on global climate change and its causes. You should come away from the course better equipped to make your own judgments about the appropriate public policies to cope with climate issues that are occurring.
Paul Hague is a retired geologist who loves to continue learning.
