TOP REVIEWS FROM OUR EARTH'S 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.
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.
An awesome course that explains step by step the basics of how climate works, and then focuses on how it is going to affect us humans in the present and in the future.
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.
