The contents of the course are such that it helps to internalize concepts of economics relating to climate change with the application of statistical techniques on real life scenarios. Moreover, it introduces a large number of climate related online resources which provide a wealth of knowledge that could be used for later reference by the participants throughout their life.

Found the course very interesting, and provided a good introduction into the topic. The example exercises were also thought-provoking, and provided a good balance between depth and complexity.

I really liked the information and found this course very helpful in understanding the relationship between economics and climate change. It basically made me understand climate change in different aspects and then also related it with economics as well. Also the Excel parts were new to me and I felt very satisfied with myself intellectually since it made me see the points I read and learned about as graphs. The graphs and data analysing made all the information look biref but efficient. Over all really enjoyed it and as a high school student, even I could understand and process every information.

It was a very helpful course. I do think as a beginner, some concepts like the discounting was difficult to grasp when related to climate change but the readings and activities helped make everything easier to understand and learn.

It's really a 3.5 but I'll give you the .5

I suggested some omissions and corrections - take a look and consider.
