ENS204 Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

Two centuries of burning fossil fuels and clearing land have changed our climate and produced largely irreversible and almost exclusively negative impacts on the environment and our wellbeing. In this course you’ll learn basic climate science and use software to model future temperature, precipitation and sea-level scenarios. You’ll investigate impacts already occurring and the limits of people and ecosystems to adapt. Spoiler alert: major challenge. Don’t despair,you’ll then take over as global climate change negotiator and propose policies to transform the way we live to avert catastrophe.
