TOP REVIEWS FROM OUR EARTH'S FUTURE
Good general introduction to climate change. Does a good job of highlighting both the science behind climate change as well as its impact on human communities now and in the future.
This course has really thought me a lot. The learning material is delivered in a great way and followed by many examples, making it very easy to understand.
I did enjoy the concepts..but it seemed like the information might have been dated. But it gave me lots to think about and contemplate and be able to share with others.
Really enjoyed this and learned new terminology, plus difficulties of prediction, use of risk assessments for varying aspects of climate change. Interesting papers to read and additional resources.
