TU TH 2:30PM 3:45PM

This course is about the past, present, and future of global climate and environmental change. The fate of the climate system should be of interest to everyone; we will experience effects of climate change throughout the rest of our lives. This course is structured to help you better understand and to communicate: (1) the historical evolution in our understanding of climate change and the climate system; (2) how past and present climate data are obtained and applied using the scientific method to support the principles of climate science; (3) the roles that climate plays in affecting the natural world and our built environment, (4) how climate change has and will continue to impact human activities and society; (5) solutions for adaptation and mitigation to climate change and their connections with environmental justice.
