Class Description
This is an introductory course for non-science majors on the theory of human-induced climate change, popularly known as "global warming."  The text has been chosen because it clearly and objectively presents the state of knowledge (and debate) at a level appropriate for non-scientists.  This will be supplemented by scientific reports and articles in the course-pack.  Through in-class activities, weekly activities in the quiz sections, and a poster project, students will develop their understanding of these ideas and express their reactions to them.  The ultimate goal of the course is to help society deal with this complex challenge by fostering citizens who understand the basic science and can think critically about proposed solutions.
