Anthropogenic (i.e. people-made) climate change is one of today’s most pressing issues. The vast majority of scientists agree that if we don’t cut our green house gas emissions significantly, we’re going to face dramatic consequences as a species. Scientists and engineers committed to solving this crisis work all day and night to come up with innovative ways to solve this problem.

In this class, you will learn the science of climate and better understand what climate change is and why it’s happening. Intro to Climate Change offers you a unique opportunity to learn hands-on, for example by controlling the climate and see consequences as you do so.
