In this online interactive course, historian Sean Munger, an expert on the history of climate change, will give you a brief but solid grounding in the background of the world’s biggest problem. How did we discover that the Earth was warming? Who discovered it, and when? How was the warming process linked to human activities? How long have we really known about climate change? How have we tried to come to terms with it? All of these questions, and more, are a part of this seminar.
Even if you don’t know who Svante Arrhenius or Roger Revelle are, and don’t know a tree ring from an ice core, you’ll get something worthwhile out of this class.
To participate, you’ll need: a Google account (free), a webcam and microphone (the ones that come built-in on most modern laptops are perfectly sufficient), and Internet access. Headphones are recommended but not required.
No “homework” or other advanced preparation necessary. No prior knowledge of history (or science) needed or assumed. Just pay $25 via PayPal, provide Sean with a working email address (you can email him here) and get ready to go online at 3:00 PM (Pacific Time) on Sunday, July 30.
There is no university or other official credit associated with this course.
