Climate Change in our Changing World
The weather and climate impact all of us in our daily lives from how much we bundle up on a cold winter to where we plan on taking warm tropic vacations. Climate change is a complex issue that brings out many different reactions from people. In this course we will cover the scientific basics of climate change, popular opinions of climate change and how climate change will impact our own lives. Students will be expected to be respectful of all opinions, while being able separate fact from opinion. There will be assigned readings over selected topics and a semester research project.
