In the past century, Earth’s average temperature has warmed by one degree Fahrenheit. What sort of difference has a degree made to our planet? How will projected future warming impact our environment and the way we live? Through this course, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the impacts of global change, those that we can see evidence of today, and those that are predicted for the future. We will explore how climate models are developed and used to understand likely scenarios of future climate and how current scientific research is improving the quality of climate predictions.
