Course Description

ONLINE: This course will address three key questions: To what extent is humanity already dealing with the consequences of climate change? What are the most effective actions humanity can take to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to current and projected climate change impacts? Is the mitigation challenge too great, and the likely global response too weak, to avoid catastrophic impacts? In lecture-based classes, we will cover recent important scientific findings related to the climate crisis, including three published reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Students will learn about and discuss: the near-term actions necessary to meet international warming targets, projections of climate impacts as a function of warming, the causes of climate change and what can be done about it. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
