Increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution are changing our climate in dramatic ways. Climate change is now an issue confronting many disciplines, from architecture, engineering and business through to environmental science, public health, law, economics and policy. This online course will draw on the expertise of a broad collection of senior active researchers to cover the basics of climate change science, as well a selection of key related areas from psychology, law, politics, economics, energy supply, ethics and health. A range of perspectives on the nature of these challenges will be treated with a critical analysis approach, encouraged through online problem solving exercises. This course is an online-only offering.
