EES 204 - Global Climate Change
Global Climate Change
Prerequisite: None

A study of the scientific data, physical theory, and computer models that scientists are using to predict rapid global warming during the current century. These predictions will be compared to previous climate history of the Earth. We will examine evidence that human activities, especially the emission of carbon dioxide through the burning of fossil fuels, is the dominant cause of current global climate change and that global warming will cause irreversible damage to natural ecosystems and will cause substantial economic and health damage to human populations. We will also evaluate proposals for decreasing the amount of global climate change and adapting to climate change.
