Become informed and armed with a deeper understanding of climate change and how you can get involved. Each week we will examine a different facet of this complicated issue. Walk through the history of the Earth’s climate, starting with an overview of the natural climate processes from ice age cycles to volcanic eruptions. Discover what scientists know and how they learn about the Earth’s climate, and explore strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the small scale (drive less) to the very large scale (geoengineering).
This is a four-week class and the cost is $65.
Dates are Oct. 1, Oct. 8, Oct. 22, and Oct. 29.
Benjamin Brown-Steiner is a scientist with experience in atmospheric sciences and science communication at Cornell and MIT and is now with Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) in Lexington. At AER, he works on emissions inventory development.
