Earth's climate is changing more rapidly than in any point in human history, making climate change one of the most significant threats to current and future generations. We currently have the solutions needed to address climate change, but it is imperative that we put these solutions into action before a tipping point is reached. This class will look at the 4.5 billion years of the Earth’s history to learn about past climate changes, and the scientific tools we use to reconstruct them. Students will learn about what causes climate change across different time scales, how humans are contributing to current and future climate change, and the personal and collective actions they can take to address climate change.
