Course Number 
FRSH 1020
Course Level 

This "first year seminar" presents evidence for human-induced forcing of global climate using Tim Flannery’s book “The Weather Makers” as primary text. We will dissect this book and papers from the primary scientific literature to evaluate the evidence for human-induced climate change at local and global scales. We also will discuss possible scenarios for the future climate on Earth and what people can do to minimize climate change impacts.
