TOP REVIEWS FROM OUR EARTH'S FUTURE
Lectures are interesting and understandable. It brought the role the ocean plays into sharp focus and told me things I had not heard before. Now if our politicians would just take the class!
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.
A very beautiful and enlightening course. Very apt course to inform the present generation about the effects of climate change and ways of tackling it.
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.
