PMU199H Climate Change

TitlePMU199H Climate Change
Schedule2 lectures
TopicsRecently, the news reported that the ice caps have melted to their lowest areas ever. Such stories appear in the news from time to time, and one can not help but wonder - is this due to climate change? What are the evidence and arguments for and against climate change generally? What exactly are the predicted consequences? What are the potential challenges and opportunities from the point of view of science, technology, economy, politics, society, etc? In this course, we will learn about how to critically appraise information and how to use the scientific method; and then we will use these tools as well as the scientific and non-scientific literature to explore these and other related topics from a non-scientist's perspective.
