About the Course

Global warming is one of the most significant challenges of the century and tackling it in the most effective way requires a good understanding of its physical, social and financial aspects. The Science and Engineering of Climate Change course offers an introduction to the science of climate change and to the existing technologies to mitigate its effects. Are we sure that the climate is changing? How confident are we that climate change is anthropogenic? Are we heading for a climate catastrophe? Why are greenhouse gases associated with global warming? What options do we have to cope with these facts? Which of the many proposals are realistic, and which are just wishful thinking? By the end of this course, you will have the necessary conceptual tools to provide your own answers to these questions. This MOOC is divided into four modules. With the first two you will understand how scientists measure climate and its evolution, how climate models work and how greenhouse gases within the atmosphere play a central role in determining the climate. The last two modules introduce the main technologies that can be used to reduce carbon emissions and carbon concentration in the atmosphere, and, in the light of the facts explained in the first part of the course, explain how these technologies can be best combined. The MOOC is for those who want to understand not only the basics of climate-change science, but also what we can really and effectively do to curb the present trend in the planet’s temperatures. No previous knowledge is required....

Love many examples of calculations and the critical-thinking approach! These are much needed in the debate of climate change today.

The lectures were well explained and the topics were really interesting. I appreciated the critical position taken by the professor during some discussions. I reccomend this course to who would like to understand why climate change is happening and what are the strategies we should consider.

High-level of course to engage with. A lot of information starting from technical point of view to proceed along a journey of alternative energy resources, scale of that, efficiency and several considerations. Along with this journey, this course provide also to consider economics, political, social environment not just as externality (because of some people just think that if you think about CO2 reduction, someone can act something to solve at once and for all), so for sure this in-depth dive could represent an out of box thoughts to lead toward an effective choice of actions to reduce and remove (that's the key of the strategy) concentration of CO2 equivalent . Congrats to professor Rebonato, clear, exhaustive, comprehensive and effective.

This course provides an in-depth introduction to climate change and to global warming, covering 2 major topics. The first is laying down the scientific foundations of global warming and the second is a survey of renewable and unrenewable energy sources, including their costs, risks and potential. The lectures are fascinating. The lecturer is doing a good job at shattering myths and at showing the whole picture: what is well proven and what is only hypothesized. It helps create a clearer understanding of where we are standing and how to consider our challenges.

Well articulated lectures. It gave a complete new perspective regarding climate change and most importantly, the emphasis on 'No Silver Bullet' to fight climate change, provided a microscopic POV on the topic. Special thanks to Prof. Rebonato for making for simplifying this complex topic.

Excellently presented, clear, informative, at the right level but with enough data and follow up materials to dig in and master the subject. Very enjoyable. Appreciated the ability to follow along with slides and the transcript also.
