This course introduces the basic science of climate change, including the greenhouse gas effect, its impacts on climate and how human activity is a major driver of climate change. Key concepts, including feedback loops, climate vs weather, and global impacts are covered. The good news is that we have all of the solutions that we need to turn things around and that change is already afoot and everyone can play a role in buiding the needed momentum to achieve a climate safe future.
