This reading and discussion-based course will delve into the science of human-caused climate change due to the widespread combustion of fossil fuels for energy, heating, and transportation. We will consider the evidence for and current expert assessment of the present-day and future consequences of changing climate, as well as the prospects for moderation and mitigation of these effects. The course will be organized around alternating, instructor-assigned small-group presentations and class-wide discussions based on technical, philosophical/fiction-based, and organized advocacy-based reading material.
