This course is intended as an introduction and overview of climate change, and associated effects, caused by human activities - primarily deforestation and combustion of fossil fuel. It covers five main subject areas: 1) The greenhouse effect-Understanding the basics, 2) Human generated greenhouse gases (GHG), 3) Options for controlling greenhouse gas emissions, 4) Climate changes - past, present and projected, 5) Organized efforts to track and reduce GHG emissions.
Most of the course focuses on the science of climate change - things we know with confidence versus areas of uncertainty. Some aspects - temperature increases and a rising ocean level - were predicted many years ago although the time scales were unknown. Other things such as the change in ocean chemistry, the speed of some changes, and the response of natural systems that amplify the effects of human GHG emissions are relatively recent discoveries.
